In the heart of the Spa region of Victoria, Daylesford is the place to relax, unwind and pamper yourself. Daylesford is a 35 minute drive from Kyneton on the Trentham/Daylesford Road which takes you past the spectacular Trentham falls. Daylesford and Hepburn Springs are nestled in the Central Highlands at the foot of the Great Dividing Range. This region is known for its spectacular scenery, historic streetscapes, natural mineral springs, spa retreats and holistic health services. The area was a prosperous gold mining town that many Swiss, Italian and other immigrants called home when they came to Australia.
Some of the attractions and events in Daylesford are:
- Convent Art Gallery
- Lake House Restaurant
- Lavandula Lavender Farm
- Cricket Willow
- Hepburn Springs Spa
- Boomerang Ranch
- Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens
- Chillout Festival
28 kilometres further along to the west, in the small town of Creswick, you will find the Tangled Maze which is great for people of all ages to explore.
On your return trip from Daylesford why not take the Castlemaine road and stop off at the Chocolate Mill near Mt. Franklin just past the Malmsbury turn off.
