We parked the car near the lake house and took a nice walk around the lake. We were greeted by some very friendly geese looking for a feed. The walk provided a few good spots for photos/selfies. It was peaceful and relaxing and picturesque.

Lots of improvement works have now been completed. Great walk track around the lake. Lovely seating areas, bbq’s and the book barn and cafe. Excellent spot for a bite to eat, swim in the warmer months and a stroll around the lake.

Not a great deal to do in Daylesford during the week.. so we decided to take a cheeky stroll around the northern loop and were pleasantly surprised. Calm, romantic, beautiful, peaceful. Highly recommended.

It's a lake. With walking tracks. If you like lakes and walking, then visit. If not I'd say don't bother. Oh, and there are birds too.
