Daylesford Accommodation, Victoria

When looking for Daylesford accommodation have a look at these wonderfully renovated mining cottages 

Located on the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, Daylesford is the perfect spot for those looking for a regional escape. Combining great food, beautiful scenery and a thriving local arts scene it’s the perfect spot for a short getaway. Founded in 1852 – Daylesford owes its discovery to gold mining however what has sustained it is the abundance of mineral springs. The town boasts 80% of all mineral springs in Victoria. When looking for accommodation in Daylesford I recommend taking a look at the beautiful mining cottages that have come to define the architecture of the town. We showcase eight of our favourite restored cottages. When looking for Daylesford accommodation check out these charming homes.
