Gisborne may be just a 45 minute drive from Melbourne but in many ways it's a different world. Far away from the city bustle, Gisborne restaurants enjoy a relaxed setting, with wide tree-lined streets, lots of heritage buildings and lush parks. There's also a thriving dining scene in Gisborne, with restaurants and cafes offering great food in beautiful surroundings. One reason for the success of restaurants in Gisborne is the plentiful supply of excellent local produce from the surrounding Macedon Ranges. Cherries and olive oil are just two of the specialities to be found in the countless farms around the town and there's also some great wine from the local vineyards.
