Daylesford, Victoria|On Weekend Notes

While I am still recovering from my long weekend trip at Daylesford, feeding the peacock, waking up to the quacking sound of the duck and relaxing at the Mineral spa watching the sun go down!

Perched at just 137 km away from Melbourne, this Victorian region offers a variety of must-do activities for family and kids, especially when its Summer in Melbourne.

#Wombat Hill Cafe & Botanical Garden

An enchanting place for a day out, exploring the lush Green botanical Gardens. Grab your Sunday brunch or relax over the morning breakfast at the wombat Hill cafe, Daylesford.

The botanical garden has tiny pieces of history, which takes you back in time.

# Lake Daylesford

A date with nature or a sublime moment with oneself, spend the day fishing or swimming in the natural spring water. It’s not advised to swim, due to cold currents and uneven surfaces, however, I couldn’t restrict myself from doing so. Needless to say, it’s a wonderful Camping and a Picnic spot.

#Lavandula Swiss Italian Farm 

Perched on 20 mins drive this Lavendula Swiss farm offers a wonderful location for a family day out. Plan a picnic or just drop by for a morning coffee, kids would love this place and couples would find it soothing to romance around the fields.

Settle down by the shade to feed the swans or see them flocking around while you enjoy the Lavender Scorn, Jam & cream.

This place has its own rustic vibes, which probably takes you back to an era, where you wish to stay a little longer.
