This is an excellent place to visit with great accommodation,excellent staff and a great menu. Not the least expensive place to visit but well worth the the cost. A great walk around the lake with marvellous views from your room.

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.

At The Amazing Mill Markets in Daylesford uncovering bargains in Carltonware of many colours and green 'uranium' glassware. A beautiful balmy 5 degrees and perfect for a walk to check out the range of BnBs everywhere overlooking the lake.

On our visit it was wet and raining for most of our stay in the area so we did not a chance to do the walks around the lake.

Lovely walk around the lake. Lots to see and length of walk was excellent for tween age kids. Will be back.

We enjoyed the walk around the lake and also spend some time walking further on. It was nice to return to the cafe/bookshop for a hot drink. There are options to suit everyone. Bird life gets very close.

Within walking distance of the centre of town this picturesque little lake is worth a visit. There is a walking track all the way around that is an easy walk. The views from all areas on the walk are worth the effort. I recommend going...More
