Daylesford - A great place to relax by Tanya Dustin

Looking to go somewhere on a girl's weekend or for some rest, relaxation or rejuvenation...


Spa treatments are on the expensive side but well worth it and make sure you take some walking shoes – watch out for the dingo’s!

One of my favourite spots - The Mill Market. A market the size of a warehouse store containing everything old – a collectors dream! Retro, antiques, clothes, furniture, posters, nick knacks you name it it’s all there! Allow, 2 hours to peruse the store and take in history. Everything is for sale and entry is free. 

Try Daylesford a 90minute drive from Melbourne.

This is a quirky little township that offers multiple spa treatment facilities, natural mineral springs, wineries, art galleries and gorgeous cafes.
