The 1980s to Now - So Different

by Carol

Since the early 1980s I have been driving through Daylesford and Hepburn Springs to visit my relations near Bendigo. Daylesford in the early 1980s was very quiet.

I remember the main street having one or two cars parked in it and most shops closed at midday which was very normal back then as it was mostly for locals and maybe a few travellers passing through.

Since the late 1980s things started to change as the Daylesford area got promoted more and visitors were discovered what a beautiful area it is, so it has blossomed into this amazingly interesting place to indulge with food and wine, spas and treatments and absolutely stunning accommodation.

I always make time to stop and discover something new or try out a new cafe or restaurant, I just can't resist.
