Mount Macedon Hotel Sells For $1.74 Million

MOUNT Macedon is no longer a town without beer.

The abandoned Mount Macedon Hotel, described by Macedon Ranges councillor Helen Relph as the soul of the mountain, sold for $1.74 million at auction on Thursday to a local who plans to re-open it as a drinking hole.

The pub closed in 2005 when its license holder Xavier David Holden was suspended for breaching the Liquor Control Act.

At 694 – 696 Mount Macedon Road, the 2.15 hectare property includes a hotel, accommodation sheds, a three bedroom home, and land for redevelopment.
