Are you craving a short day trip? Daylesford is a perfect location to unwind and have a winter picnic. Just an hour away, the spa capital of Victoria offers a lot of things. Amazing cafes, a scenic lake hike, kids playgrounds and more. The drive is amazing with beautiful sceneries and as you reach your destination, Lake Daylesford gives you a warm welcome.

We stopped at the Bad Habits Café at the Covent Gallery. It's a beautiful, small café with rustic décor and lip-smacking food. We tried the scones (most popular menu items) and the Nutella crepe. This is one place you can't miss if you are in Daylesford. It's open from 10 am to 4 pm, so your breakfast and lunch are sorted.

We headed for a short walk around the lake afterwards along the Lovelock bridge.

You can take a long walk around the lake that takes about 40 minutes. This is a great way to enjoy the picturesque beauty of this place.

Daylesford is a place that gives you old English countryside vibes with amazing food and experiences. If you are after a relaxing weekend getaway, Daylesford is what you need.

Hi Risha, we're heading down to Melbourne in October and will be driving through Daylesford. We'll look these places up.

Hi Diane,
It takes about 90 minutes from Melbourne to Daylesford by cara. Vline takes around 3 hours from the city. I believe taking bus is the cheapest way to get to Daylesford.
