Overview

Daylesford

From the Dja Dja Wurrung people, who first inhabited the land thousands of years ago, to the Swiss Italian migrants of the gold rush and Melbourne's turn-of-the-century holidaymakers, Daylesford has long been considered a special place of healing.

Wellness and vitality

Find balance and invigorate your body and mind in Daylesford's famous mineral waters. Enjoy the region's natural mineral springs with a rejuvenating spa experience at Hepburn Bathhouse, Salus or Peppers Mineral Springs. Book in for relaxing massages and silky, skin-renewing rituals. Emerge refreshed from your mud wrap and finish with a cleansing mineral spa.

Gettin' around

Slow down, unwind and be sure to take in the natural surroundings of Victoria's spa centre. Watch native wildlife at play and fill up a bottle with the local mineral water down at Lake Daylesford, paddle around in a kayak on Jubilee Lake, or get the blood flowing with a walk to the top of Wombat Hill.

Browse arty collectables and homewares at boutiques, such as Bromley & Co., Arte Deco and Harry & Me, or climb aboard the Spa Country Railway for a trip with the kids to the popular Sunday Market.

Gathering together

Time your visit to coincide with one of the town's many community celebrations. A regional mecca for the gay community, Daylesford comes alive each March for the annual Chill Out Festival, the largest country queer pride event in Australia.

From the fields

Save your seat at some of Victoria's best restaurants. Wine and dine at Daylesford's renowned Lake House Restaurant, winner of two hats from The Age Good Food Guide or try out the Argus Dining Room. Enjoy a Japanese banquet at hatted Kazuki's or be tempted by tapas at Perfect Drop. Make a reservation for fine pub dining at the Farmers Arms, or supper at Mercato, where style and seasonal produce meet.
