Take a walk around picturesque Lake Daylesford and take in the sights and sounds of nature. A short stroll from the town centre, Lake Daylesford offers something to keep everyone happy.
Children love bird spotting and the playground is always a hit. Why not hire a paddle boat for an hour or two or spend the day and utilise the BBQ facilities.
You will find a cafe and restaurant right on the shores of the lake and many more activities. Don’t forget to taste the famous mineral water at Wombat Flat Mineral Spring and Central Springs Reserve.
Lake Daylesford is a manmade lake, originally a site of gold diggings, then later a Chinese market garden. The construction of the lake began in 1927 and was and still is used for many recreational activities.

The success of our style of cooking depends on the very best ingredients, being treated in the simplest way to enhance their natural flavours. The meals are prepared to order “a la minute”, nothing is pre-cooked, please allow a little time so that our qualified chefs can ensure your meal is prepared with expertise and care.
If at any time we are unable to serve you an item which appears on the menu, it is only because it wasn’t available fresh on the day.
