The beautiful country town of Daylesford is located in the Goldfields Region of Victoria, an hour’s drive north west of Melbourne, and is nestled between the regional cities of Bendigo and Ballarat. From the moment you arrive you will find the breathtaking views and laid-back atmosphere to be like nothing you have ever experienced before. No matter the season, the beauty of the landscape will delight your senses and ignite your desire to explore further. Daylesford is a notable tourist destination with numerous spa houses, restaurants and galleries alongside gardens and country-house-conversion styled bed and breakfasts. The Daylesford wine region is fast becoming known as Australia's best Pinot growing region. Daylesford is also located just minutes away from the natural mineral springs at Hepburn Springs Nature Reserve, another popular destination for locals and tourists. The town hosts a number of annual events including the Chillout Festival, the Harvest Week Festival, the Lavandula Festival and the Hepburn Springs Swiss Italian Festival. All the essential services are available just as you would in any larger town but with a friendly small-town approach, while also offering a number of primary schools and one public secondary school. Daylesford also has a football team in the Central Highlands Football League. Approx 46km from Ballarat, Daylesford has a massive drawcard for metropolitans, especially on weekends when the streets are jammed packed with tourists from across the State.
