Online Groups

Ideally, connecting with people in person is best. However, when you have little people and busy schedules, this can be tricky at times. We have collated some of the best local Facebook groups for parents which have a supportive community feel, where you can ask questions and share ideas.


Playgroups are one way to make connections in your community, particularly if you are new to the area and have young children. There are many across the Macedon Ranges, meaning there are plenty of times and price points to choose from.
