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.

  • 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.
