Lake Daylesford is a serene place to relax and enjoy nature. Plenty of benches all around the lake offer a place to sit and relax. For something more active, take a walk around the lake or along the paths, go for a swim, or take out a paddleboat. After that, a nice picnic or barbecue will be in order. There is also a cafe where you can enjoy a cup of coffee or a tea. Be sure to drink some water from the mineral spring.

Beautiful location to stop and grab a coffee. Plenty of walking / hiking tracks, swimming holes, bed and breakfast and accommodation options.
Superb swimming spot, even for those who are a little afraid of the Loch Ness Monster. Not a monster in sight just swimming bliss!
