One of the main reasons for our trip to Creswick was to investigate walking possibilities in the Daylesford area, as C has indicated that she would like to do this when she is back for a while in a few months time. So we headed off to Daylesford for the day. The drive over from Creswick is quite pleasant and the previous day’s rain had cleared.
My activities included a look at the main street (including quite some time at Paradise Books), a visit to the very helpful Visitor Information Centre where I collected more than enough information about walking in the area, lunch at the Boathouse (lovely view, good food), a walk around Lake Daylesford and coffee at the Book Barn.
Daylesford is obviously on the tourist circuit. Not only were a reasonable number of people around, there are plenty of things to keep them occupied! I was particularly struck by the amount of boutique accommodation that seems to be available. There are a number of properties with signs etc, but my perception was reinforced by websites such as this.
