Day 5: Daylesford

A full day in Victoria’s spa country on a private tour. Spoil yourself with a massage in Daylesford, famous for its mineral springs. Or tempt your taste buds at one of the region’s cool climate vineyards. Breathe in the European heritage with a visit to Lavandula Swiss Italian Farm. Stroll around the historic convent and take in its galleries and gardens before a gourmet lunch at the award-winning Lake House. Later, be hypnotised by the natural beauty of the Macedon Ranges Regional Park and Hanging Rock, a six-million-year-old dormant volcano.
