Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    What a fantastic experience. From the entry to the exit plenty of history. I was not there for the art so much as the historical convent. although there are some fantastic pieces scattered through the whole building. The Cafe-restaurant seemed to have a booming trade. The bar at the end of the journey was fantastic. If you are lucky you may encounter the owner who is a very happy and entertaining . She has some great stories to share on her journey from first purchasing and renovating.

    Imagine something bizarre- blink- it's there! Imagine something tastefully decorative- blink - it's there! Imagine something that makes you go 'hmmm' - blink -it's there!

    This is not an " I dream of Jeannie" moment where there is a genie to grant you every wish! This is real life. The window has a rainbow coloured rhinoceros, there are coloured bulldogs sitting on a shelf, guitar art, bizarre doll art ( decapitated dolls come to this store for a new life :) ) ... but there are also some beautiful and exquisitely tasteful pieces of furniture.

    This store is worth wandering into because it's going to take your imagination on an adventure. The prices are quite reasonable.

    Ok, I generally get dragged to markets by my wife which ends up with me standing around while she visits every stall under the sun. This happened again but the Daylesford market has a lot of variety for old grumpy blokes. There is a bloke that sells biltong, a chili maker, and a few places that sell wine, spirits, and so on. There is something for everyone with the train station, several pretty good food stalls, and a fair few trash and treasure types. I'd recommend the Gordons hat shop in particular that sells some great quality hats. Well, if that doesnt work there is a good shop 5 minutes away that does hot chocolate that is really good and you can wait there...

    Found this gem in Victoria - the cafe is bright with clean lines and great photography on the walls.
    My lunch was amazing - very reasonable - I had their breakfast wrap and Americano - absolutely delicious - wonderful service.

    Went in unsure of what to expect but we spent a good hour to 90mins just wandering the isles and checking out what was on offer. There is a mix of collectables, old, new, games, books, clothes, food art and so much more. It felt like it was going to be busy going on the car park but once you get in there was heaps of space. There are a number of staff around willing to help, and if they see you carrying a few things they will gladly take it up to the front counter so you can keep wandering. Even if you don’t buy anything it is fun just to walk around. The parking is free and there is toilets and a cafe onsite

    My wife Emily (who says she doesn't have a creative bone in her body and would only be able to draw stick figures) and I did a workshop with Art Laid Bare as part of the ChillOut Festival.

    It was the perfect sized group (approx. 12 of us). It didn't matter whether or not you thought you were creative. By the end of it, we had all done something we could be really proud of.

    The hosts Simon and Georgie were fantastic!! Simon is thoroughly engaging and Georgie's skill and encouragement is on point! A great couple of hours that flew by sipping sparkling, laughing and really losing ourselves in the moment. Thanks so much!! We'll be back!!

    I'll start by saying the staff are beautiful people especially the lady (sorry can't remember her name but I did get the impression she was the owner) we spoke with. She was happy to show us a few pieces and explain them to us. The shops layout was easy to just walk around and view all their amazing pieces of art, jewelry etc...

    We recently visited this Daylesford retail outlet to check out the beautifully displayed woollen garments in their window. Inside the staff (2 guys) we extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the excellent Creswick brand. I purchased a pair of gorgeous red woollen gloves and a pair of ‘fingerless’ red woollen gloves (excellent for my arthritic fingers).

    Owned by Emma and Struan Hopwood is this gorgeous gallery. There are distinct art styles in the store and one of them should appeal to you because they are quite diverse. I believe Struan's works are the edgy, street art type of work... vibrant in colour and they tell a story.

    Whereas Emma does nudes and suits... and she does both very well. I was fortunate enough to briefly speak to her in the store... which is another appeal for anyone who loves art... you may just meet the incredible artists behind the work.

    I really enjoyed my walk through their store... I have to admit my personal preference was drawn to Emma's work... but art speaks to each of us differently.

    There were also a series of amazing velvet looking sculptures that intrigue your imagination. I don't believe you should visit Daylesford and miss this store!

    The course was amazing, would definitely recommend! Nick is very patient and at the end of it you get a fully setup guitar that sounds amazing.

    Has old and not so old collectables. Quite expensive so search carefully for that bargain. In Vincent Road Daylesford.

    A great store to spend some time looking for some undiscovered treasures. Lots to see and explore, just make sure you have some time.
