Lake Daylesford, Daylesford

4.1
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.

  • Casual walking around the Lake, or more challenging walks along trails to and from the Lake. Picnic and bbq spots, casual dining at the Boathouse Cafe or fine dining at The Lakehouse Restaurant. Great...  more »
  • I walked along the lake. Lots of wildlife to see like ducks, geese, birds. You can also taste the mineral water from the springs.  more »
  • Had a walk around the lake and it was good, it could have been much more peaceful if it was not crowded but then its not the lake to be blamed. A good place to visit when not crowded.  more »

  • Walking track around the lake is a must. We fed geese and ducks and had a lot of fun. Really beautiful and romantic walk with my husband.
  • Beautiful place, picturesque landscape, lovely lake, lots of little ducks, geese and coot. And dont forget the number of fresh mineral springs scattered around the lake. Perfect for a day out :)
  • One of the icons of daylesford is the lake. A superb place to hang out, and for a run too! Ducks and geese here have a reputation of being very friendly if you've got food in your hands. And the reflections on the lake make it a great place to take photos.
  • Beautiful walking track with gorgeous geese. You just feel relaxed being there
  • Great area to sit, have a picnic & enjoy the lakeside views.
