Macclesfield ANZAC Memorial Gardens
Covering two acres the garden is filled with memorials and artworks to commemorate the service of local men and women in times of war. A meandering walking trail has the names of hundreds of local people inscribed in the paved surface, covering periods of service from the earliest days of the South Australian colony up to the present day.
A dedicated commemorative area allows for formal and informal remembrance services to be conducted as well as a site for rest and reflection.
A unique feature of the garden is the interactive element, as it encourages veterans to become involved with the garden in practical ways to provide an outlet for those that are in need of a place to feel a connection and find solace.
For those who enjoy gardening to budding artists and even just to enjoy a day in the hills, the Macclesfield ANZAC Memorial Gardens is worth a visit.

Established in 1898, Kuitpo was the first of a number of forest plantations in the Mount Lofty Ranges to ensure a sustainable timber resource for South Australia.
Today, Kuitpo Forest Reserve covers an area of some 3,600 hectares, of which 60 percent is softwood plantation. Kuitpo's plantations yield some 25,000 cubic metres of timber each year, valued in excess of AUD1.5 million.
Kuitpo is modelled as a community forest, managed for sustainable commercial forestry, while providing for the conservation of native flora and fauna and community use for recreation.

Macclesfield Gravity Festival
The pull of gravity is harnessed once a year for our race and is believed to draw its power from a deep vein of daftness that runs under the town. That raw daftness has been tapped since 1840, when it was first discovered by Dr Maccles, and is exported all over the world to allow politicians and captains of industry to make ludicrous decisions whilst expecting re-election or promotion.
The two day event is in April when we race down the hill, watch live bands on the open air stage. enjoy the wide variety of stalls and welcome thousands of people to our little town to enjoy a bit of good old fashioned daftness.
