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.

Calembeen Park Creswick

Calambeen Park has two beautiful lakes that are home to birdlife and displays of waterlilies. It was once the town’s Chinese camp in the goldmining days, now you can visit the park for walking, cycling, swimming, fishing and a favourite of locals and visitors alike, the now restored dive tower.

Calambeen Park is home to the public art piece ‘My Dearest’, which can be found by taking the walking trail around the lake.
