Horse Lovers Paradise
The locality, which was named after Macclesfield in England, was briefly the scene of mining activities after gold was discovered in Macclesfield Creek in 1865. The town is now known for having the highest percentage of horse ownership per head of population in Australia.
If you are looking for rolling hills with usable land, Macclesfield is your place. With many roadside horse trails and the fabulous Macclesfield Pony Club only minutes from Monbulk or Emerald, you can't go wrong with lifestyle properties.
Houses on medium acreages vary in price from $700,000 to well over a million dollars for houses with the top quality fixture, fittings and amenities.
