Surburb overview

The township of Daylesford is an idyllic destination marked by rolling hills, misty hot springs, lush vineyards and sprawling lavender fields. An hour’s drive from Melbourne, it is a popular escape among city dwellers who are enthralled by the scenic Lake Daylesford and its waters' healing properties. Daylesford is also renowned throughout the country for its vibrant food and art scene.

Suburb background

Born out of a gold rush, Daylesford drew a wave of Swiss and Italian immigrants during the mid-1800s, when alluvial gold was discovered on its shores. This vibrant period saw the emergence of Daylesford as a promising settlement and shaped a great deal of its history and local culture. A number of historic buildings were erected during this time as the city enjoyed immense growth.

The town’s expansion plateaued for a while, until enterprising property investors took notice of Daylesford’s potential. Bargain-hunting real estate buyers bought acres of fertile land to be turned into farming areas or wineries some 30 to 40 years ago. Others, meanwhile, focused on renovating derelict properties and turned them into the charming bed and breakfasts and luxury spas that define the township’s reputation today.

Despite all the hype surrounding Daylesford, majority of its real estate remains affordable, save for a few heritage properties that go on the market from time to time. This value is still unparalleled, compared to other tourism hotspots in the country.
