Location

Daylesford, Victoria, Australia

Daylesford is unique in many ways, with great cafe's, restaurants and has been considered the Spa capital of Melbourne. Hepburn Springs is a 10-minute drive.

About Daylesford

According to AirRentalz, Daylesford is in the Hepburn Shire located in the Goldfields area between the regional cities of Ballarat and Bendigo. Other nearby towns are Castlemaine, Creswick, Trentham, and Clunes. Daylesford is easily accessible from Melbourne, being a 90-minute drive, mostly on the Freeway.

Gold was first discovered in the early 1850s where Lake Daylesford is now. Thousands of locals and immigrants heard about Daylesford and flocked to the goldfields in the hope of getting rich and of course, some did but many more did not.

About a thousand of the immigrants came from the Ticino region in Switzerland to find gold. These immigrants could speak Italian hence the Swiss-Italian influence still seen today in some of Daylesford's and Hepburn Springs beautiful buildings and multicultural lifestyle. Many descendants still live and work in the area.

The Daylesford area has an abundance of mineral springs which were formed millions of years ago. In Daylesford, there are many mineral springs that are easily accessible like the Central Springs and the Wombat Flat Springs. Both of these are very close to Lake Daylesford and you can find them when you go for a leisurely stroll around the lake.

What is so Special about Daylesford

Driving into Daylesford you will be greeted with beautiful forests and streetscapes worthy of many photos. When you start exploring there are two beautiful lakes, stunning gardens, and historic buildings and this is just the beginning.

The main street of Daylesford is Vincent Street, there is an amazing array of boutique shops and many other unique shops, cafes, restaurants for everyone to explore. Also, there are many historic buildings to admire along the way like the Town Hall and the Post Office which were both built in the late 1800s.

Natural therapy is a huge part of the area, there are over one hundred businesses based around natural wellness including spas, massages, acupuncture and much more. You will be pampered and treated in the most amazing locations, quite often only a few steps from luxury and nature.

Many of the shops are in original buildings from the 1800s or early 1900s. As you walk the main street of Daylesford it is interesting to imagine what they could have been when the main street was dirt and 'horse and carts' and the first cars were being used.

Things To Do

Driving into the Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens is exciting and breathtakingly beautiful. From high on the hill the views over Daylesford are amazing and the manicured trees and plants are a gardeners dream come true. The trees that were first planted in the 1860s are huge and some are very rare. Follow the paths, climb the lookout tower, have a picnic, sit in the rotunda and visit the conservatory and the Wombat Hill House Cafe.

Daylesford has two lakes that are quite different, Lake Daylesford and Jubilee Lake. Lake Daylesford is about one kilometer from the main street and has great views from every angle. It is surrounded by manicured lawns, bridges and a walking path called the 'Peace Mile'. Try your luck at catching a fish, have fun on a paddle boat, view an abundance of birdlife and see historical buildings and places of interest.

Jubilee Lake is about 2.5 kilometers out of Daylesford towards Ballan. Jubilee Lake is in a beautiful natural bush setting which is very quiet and peaceful. Next to the lake is the Jubilee Lake Holiday Park where you can stay for a holiday or you can visit for the day. Picnic facilities are available, a playground, canoes, and paddleboats are for hire, go fishing, bird watching, bushwalking and exploring.

Daylesford and Hepburn Springs have many other things to do, if you are visiting with your family you may be looking for some ideas for family fun things to do.

There are so many 'unique, natural, beautiful, historical and exciting' things that are blended together to make Daylesford and Hepburn Springs so 'Awesome!'
