I live on the cusp of Melbourne which means I’m close to the countryside so exploring country Victoria was always one of my list of things to do. Last weekend, we went to visit Daylesford which is around one a half hours from where I live.
We arrived at Daylesford around midday and went to have lunch straight away. We found a American style diner at the town center. It was one of my first times having a beef burger so I I’m not wholly qualified to rate the place but my friend J said it was one of the better burgers he’s had. The waffle fries we ordered to go with our burgers though couldn’t be faulted.
After lunch we popped in and out of the various other shops around the town centre. Lots of people seems to have had the same idea as us because the shops were buzzing with people. Most of the shops had local hand made things like plates, candles and pictures. I always love wandering around shops like those because everything is unique and you can tell that people have put a lot of thought, time and effort. Plus it’s nice to support artists and local products.
We went to explore Lake Daylesford afterwards as it was right near the town centre. It was quite hot the day we went so there were people who were having picnics around the lake. Interestingly though, there weren’t any people swimming, fishing or riding boats in the lake itself as I thought there might be.
