Story House and Garden
Story House and Garden is a place where people come together to listen, share and develop stories. Located in idyllic Daylesford, visitors can take an enchanted tour through a house and garden filled with stories, attend an entertaining storytelling session or participate in a range of interactive story workshops.
Stories are the foundation of a connected and happy life. People who know their own stories have an inner strength and confidence. But in today’s fast moving world people often don’t take the time to listen to stories and appreciate the power of their message.
Overwrought Sculpture Garden and Gallery
Overwrought Sculpture Garden and Gallery is an inspiring creative retail enterprise set on five acres of lush farmland in Blampied, Central Victoria just eight minutes from Daylesford on the Midland Highway to Ballarat. Artist David Dawson creates his uniquely Australian sculptural metalwork designs in his extensive workshop. He then displays them next door in the rustic hay-shed gallery and beautifully landscaped garden setting that he has created. His creations include garden art, native Australian animals and birds, furniture, wall art, magnetic creatures, privacy screens and much more. The gallery also offers the art and produce of thirty local and fair trade artisans, many whose work is not available to purchase elsewhere. For your enjoyment Overwrought provides toilets, coffee,drinks and ice creams and picnicking areas. Extensive parking is available for all vehicles including caravans and buses. The kids can even feed our fish in our garden ponds and pat an alpaca or two.
Clunes is a Booktown all year round and offers a FREE series of writer talks on the third Sunday of the month – known as Booktown on Sunday. The charming Goldfields village of Clunes is internationally recognised as a Booktown. It is a hub of ideas and the arts… along with a disproportionately high number of bookshops.
Each year, an army of local volunteers and a small team of staff, host the annual Clunes Booktown Festival, which attracts 18,000 people to enjoy the most amazing whole town bookshop in the world. Think author talks, workshops, live entertainment, a kids village, and good food.
