Each region in Australia is known for something in particular and in Daylesford Victoria you will find lots of day spas. In fact, it is a small village that is nestled deep inside the day spa country in this area. You will find heritage when you go to the bed and breakfasts in Daylesford as they reflect the time when people used to go to spas as a pastime.
Just as in the past people came to this area to rest and relax while they rejuvenated in the mineral springs. Today, people come for the same reason and but now they can also shop, take part in many activities and have a wonderful bed and breakfast to stay in.
Accommodation in Daylesford
Although you could stay in hotels, a more quaint way to explore the area is to stay at one of several Daylesford b&bs for a taste of the real country area. You could stay at the Cherry Tree Cottage of Daylesford which is in the middle of the town. They provide a wonderful way to soak in one of the claw foot tubs.
You also can explore shops that are in walking distance from the Cottage. When you wake up in the morning, try the big ranch combo complete with port and chocolate. You can have it served in the fresh air on your private balcony, weather permitting.
For another type of experience stay at the Pendower House B&B which is a restored Victorian home. Enjoy the luxury suite that comes with a spa and modern amenities. However, you will want to check out the view as you will see lovely gardens. This Daylesford b&b will serve you a four course breakfast in the morning, which is included in the tariff.
Things To Do
There are so many things to see and to do here that it will be difficult to pack all of it in within a few days.
Going on right now through the first two weeks in October is the Tesselaar Tulip Festival where you can tiptoe through the tulips into a nice picnic spot where you can smell the flowers, experience the beauty and indulge yourself in wine tasting.
Also going on through the same period is the Fringe Festival which you will not want to miss. This is 19 days of events that include art, theater, cabaret, circus, music and much more. You will find this in Melbourne as well.
Starting October 30 and going through November 3, you will find the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz. This is exciting if anyone is into music because it attracts both local and international talent. You have the opportunity for wine tasting and you can go for a whole week or a weekend. Either way you will enjoy the festivities here.
When you stay at a bed and breakfast Daylesford, you will find it to be relaxing and fun so enjoy!
