We pride ourselves on being good and respectful neighbours. If you are a guest, neighbour or community member affected by noise from guests, suppliers or staff currently at a Discover Daylesford Guest House near you, please help us to help you…

Please refer to the EPA for advice on what is reasonable noise and acceptable times of noise, so we can all appreciate acceptable standards.


If you have a grievance, then talking with a noisy neighbour may be helpful. Your neighbour may not be aware they are disturbing you. Talking about the noise early on can help make neighbours aware of the problem and be more considerate.

If noise continues after a respectful conversation or you would prefer us to have the conversation please contact us during business hours and we will be happy to assist.

If noise continues past the times published by the EPA then please contact local police on (03) 5348 2342.
