The Hike - Daylesford is a place I love visiting and with another family Christmas planned here in 2019, I was very happy to return. Caris' aunt and uncle were hosting the family at their lovely house in Daylesford so immediately I started thinking about some hiking activities I could do on the trip. Having previously done the Tipperary Track and Werribee Gorge on previous visits, I was hoping to get out on one day and take in something similar. One walk I hadn't really thought about writing about for the website was the lovely loop circuit around Lake Daylesford. On my previous visit before our Three Capes trip I enjoyed a lengthy walk around town and took in a section of the loop in really cool misty conditions (see bottom of page for photos). Given it was summer I wasn't expecting the same conditions but was still keen to check out the full loop.
