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.

  • Just go and chill for an hour or so, you will enjoy the serenity. Go on your own with a book or with a friend for a walk. Just beautiful.  more »
  • These lakes are awesome. Nature's beauty with birds singing and the walk around the lake is mesmerizing. Loved this place.  more »
  • Great little walk. Took roughly an hour to get around the whole lake. I don’t recommend wearing thongs as my feet looked shocking after.  more »

  • It’s beautiful. Clear water and greenery around the lake gives immense satisfaction and a peaceful feeling. It’s the only place in Daylesford which we like. You can take a short walk around the lake, swim across or do paddle boating. There is a caffe at the corner where you can enjoy breakfast and lunch but if you want to have a coffee while sitting at corner of lake you will be disappointed as that caffe doesn’t serve coffee only.
  • Nice walking track around the lake - took us about an hour but we took it slow.
  • Nice spot for a picnic, bbq and a walk around the lake
  • 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 :)
