Daylesford to Hepburn Springs
Directions - From the centre of Daylesford head south along the main strip until you see the signs for Lake Daylesford. There are paths all around the lake but the start of the track is located on the SW edge of the lake just past the Boathouse.
The Hike - Christmas this year took on a different flavour as the in-laws were all gathering in country Victoria for the annual event. Joining my partner and her family for a few days in the picturesque town of Daylesford, just over an hour’s drive from Melbourne, seemed like a good excuse to explore what she describes as the Margaret River of Victoria. With my hiking gear packed we arrived just before midnight on my birthday to join the hundreds of others flying over to the sporting capital of the world.
