Daylesford, Victoria is an incredibly beautiful place for a weekend away. For a small town, it has a lot to offer, plenty to see and do with some incredible dining choices.
I am going to break this blog up into a few sections, documenting some of the places we were fortunate to explore over our two-day trip.
The Convent Gallery
The Convent Gallery is beautiful with incredible views overlooking Daylesford. The surrounding gardens and inside of the gallery are gorgeous. There was a cafe however we missed the opportunity to dine inside. It is now on my bucket list for when we return to Daylesford.
Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens
Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens are stunning, spending half of the day exploring them was incredible. We were walking around and gushing over the lush green botanicals and pretty flowers. In the middle of the garden is a beautiful cafe. Wombat Hill House had stunning decor, a real country vibe and great coffee.
If you ever get the opportunity book in for dinner at the Lake House, the views are stunning, the atmosphere is beautiful and the food is even better. I would have to say it was probably some of the best food I have ever had. It was also the first time I had experienced real ‘fine dining’ and I fell in love with it. If I had the chance to go again, I would definitely book a room from the images I’ve seen they’re amazing.
Lavandula Swiss Italian Farm
Imagine a farm for lavender surrounded by pretty little objects and country vibes that would sum up Lavandula Swiss Italian Farm. It is beautiful, smells amazing and is full of bees (a little bit scary). This farm hardly had any restrictions and you could go up-close and personal with all the lavender and the bees. It was such an incredible experience and has such a calming feel to it.
The trip to Daylesford, amazing. It is one of those places I would recommend if you wanted to get away and relax but if you were up for a bit of adventure or exploring this town does not limit you at all.
Did I mention, it looks stunning as the sun is setting.
Until we met again Daylesford.
