Three Lost Children Reserve & Walk – 16 km’s | 6 hours one way

Stop at the three Lost Children Reserve to rest and contemplate. Learn about the story of the Three Lost Children or experience the walking trail.

A peaceful walk through the forest surrounding Daylesford, this 16km one way trail takes in gentle hills and beautiful scenery. The Three Lost Children Walking Trail commemorates the tragic story from Daylesford’s golden era when three small boys wandered away from their homes in 1867. Despite a massive and lengthy search effort by the united townsfolk, the boys were not found alive. The Three Lost Children walk follows the approximate route the boys walked and takes you through bush landscapes that were once active goldfields, and now are part of the Wombat State Forest and the Hepburn Regional Park. Along the walk you will see the remnants of gold mines, water races and tramways. Visit the memorial cairn on Wheelers Hill Rd, Musk and the gravesite and memorial at Daylesford Cemetery.

The track runs from picturesque Lake Daylesford to the Hepburn Mineral Springs Reserve, following Sailors Creek and Spring Creek through foothill forest for most of the way. The 16km track can be walked in five to six hours, is mostly level to gently undulating and is quite easy walking.

This track is not for bikes or horses.

If you don't wish to walk the whole length of the track, try a shorter walk. Between Lake Daylesford and Bryces Flat, there is track on both sided of Sailors Creek allowing for loop walks of various lengths.
