Lake Daylesford, Daylesford Reviews
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 :)
