Gisborne South is a locality in the southern part of the Macedon Ranges, a forested region of Victoria, Australia, a short drive north west of the city of Melbourne[2][3][4][5] . Known for its vineyards, olive groves and thriving horse and alpaca industries, Gisborne South has a population of 742 as of the 2006 census.[1]

Gisborne South consists entirely of large scenic acreages [6] and as such does not have its own central commercial area. Residents travel to the nearby town of Gisborne to access services and amenities. As Gisborne South is the closest to Melbourne's CBD of the Macedon Ranges' townships, residents of Gisborne South are largely professionals who commute to Melbourne for work whilst enjoying the tranquility, artisan food and wine and comparative affordability of the Macedon Ranges.
