What You’ll Love...

The Accommodation - A farmhouse-style retreat an hour from Melbourne

Sitting conveniently just over an hour from Melbourne, your return group transfers will deliver you to (and from) The Manor House, a charming property that oozes cosiness and intimacy and acts as a welcoming sanctuary after a busy day out and about. This retreat features a countryside kitchen, log fireplace, main indoor dining room, outdoor barbecue and dining area and eight private bedrooms.

Wake up in an elegant and cosy room with king or twin bedding and a private en suite bathroom which overlooks the gardens.

The Food - Enjoy daily breakfast, three lunches and two dinners

Enjoy daily breakfast at the Manor House and a morning tea at the Red Beard Bakery in the village of Trentham, a historic bakery whose original wood-fired Scotch oven was in continuous use from the years 1891 - 1987. You’ll also enjoy daily pre-dinner nibbles and feast on fresh local produce with three lunches and two two-course dinners included.

The Trek - Enjoy guided walks by day, soothing bathing one afternoon and more

Set off on daily scenic guided walks with experienced guides. Admire the scenery from beautiful Lake Daylesford to Hepburn Springs passing rugged gorges, The Blowhole of Sailors Creek - which was carved into the rock to allow miners to search for gold in the dry creek bed - and handmade bridges en route. Walk along the Goldfields Track past Beehive Gully, a ravine caused by extensive mining. Then walk from Porcupine Ridge through Sailor’s Gully, Vaughan and Fryerstown, a former gold town which was home to more than 15,000 people at the height of the gold rush.

After busy days of walking and exploring, relax and experience the benefits of the mineral-rich waters of Hepburn Springs spa town with an afternoon of bathing to soothe your muscles.

Sample indulgent chocolates at the Chocolate Mill and visit the Daylesford Cider House, a boutique cider maker which produces 17 varieties from organically grown English heritage-listed apples.
