For that special Easter and Autumn getaway, Daylesford and the surrounding region offers an exciting playground for both adults and children.
As summer draws to a close there are many signs that nature is gearing up for the next season. And what a spectacular season it is!
A dazzling display of gold or crimson leaves is one of the defining features of autumn. It’s a lovely time of year to explore one of the most fantastic regions in Victoria.
There are mountains and fells to climb, forests to conquer, lakes and creeks to play in, on and around. Picnic on a tranquil lake-shore or a top Mt Franklin. Checkout the waterfalls, bush walks, bike rides + more.
