Renowned as one of Victoria's leading arts and culinary communities, Daylesford also sits in the heart of the Goldfields Track, with options heading both north and south.
Once the hard yards have been completed, however, the wide choice of food styles and venues will ensure energy is quickly and pleasantly replenished. Daylesford also feeds the mind with a wide variety of galleries and exhibitions.
Of course, just down the hill is Hepburn Springs, home of some of Australia's most famous spas. There can be no better way to ease the aches and pains of a day on the Track than with a good, hot, soak.
