Set on the fringes of the Hepburn Regional Park, Daylesford was founded on gold diggings. By 1859 gold had lured more that 3,000 hopeful prospectors to the area including Swiss-Italians from Northern Italy and the Swiss canton of Ticino. The Swiss-Italians realised the value of the health-giving mineral springs in the area and began bottling the water, and by 1865 ensured the springs were protected from gold mining.

Castlemaine is a town delighted by grand buildings, wide boulevards and stunning gardens, all reflecting the prosperity and grandeur of the gold rush.

This grandeur compliments modern day Castlemaine, where you can find a relaxed cafe', funky boutiques and a vibrant arts scene.

Gold history was made on the Mount Alexander diggings;, an area that now forms part of the Castlemaine Diggings Heritage National Park - Australia's first National Heritage park.

Maldon is undoubtedly the best preserved of Victoria's gold mining towns.  The 19th century streetscape features old weatherboard homes, solid stone buildings and charming old shopfronts.

Morning tea is included, Lunch is at own expense.
