Driving directions:

When in Castlemaine, follow the Midland Highway to Harcourt and Bendigo. When approaching Harcourt, veer left onto Calder Highway. Go straight through Harcourt (still towards Bendigo), setting your trip meter on zero at the milkbar/shop (on the left). Continue 3.7km further and turn sharply right towards Harcourt North into McIvor Road. Stay on this smaller road for 8.5km. Enjoy the scenery as it winds through the hills, past the North Harcourt reservoir (on your left). Do NOT turn right into Sutton Grange Road. When you come to a yellow 60km sign, at the crest of the hill, turn left onto Ford Road (dirt and signposted) Go along Ford Road for 1.5km until you come to MillDuck on the left, opposite Moffat Drive. It has a traditional post and rail fence and a solar gate....to open it, press the button on the post then drive directly through. It closes by itself after a short time.
