The old Sunbury courthouse, dating from 1885, was restored and turned into the Sunbury Visitor Information Centre in 1993. Aitken’s Gap Gaol, built in 1857, was moved from its original location near the Calder Highway, to beside the information centre. This is a good place to visit if you’re planning to explore the Macedon Ranges. 43 Macedon Street.
Goonawarra Public Golf Course is an 18-hole championship course in a pretty setting. The mildly undulating course with lakes was designed by Tony Cashmore. You can play while taking in views of surrounding wineries and the Macedon Ranges. Sunbury Mini Golf and Driving Range is nearby. 2 Francis Boulevard.
You don’t have to travel out of Sunbury to see the latest movies. Readings has five screens showing blockbusters and some arthouse movies. I have been living in Sunbury for 30 years and it used to be the end of the earth, but now we have everything within our reach. The cinemas are great for local kids, and the grown-ups too. Horne Street.
