Daylesford - Lake Daylesford




Lake Daylesford is a man-made lake which was built in 1929. The location offers scenic walks.

Review:


Lake Daylesford is a large picturesque lake with plenty of water birds including ducks, black and white swans and geese. The lake is separated by a busy road (Bleakley Street)and there are walking tracks around the complete lake. At one end there is a spillway with foot bridge above it next to the historic change-rooms and stone steps. In the past there was a swimming pool in front of the change-rooms plus a diving tower on the other side of the lake. These no longer exist.

There is a basic playground, Boathouse Café, Lukey's Boat Hire, toilets, shelters with tables and BBQs located around the lake. At Lukey's Boat Hire you can hire paddleboats (about $10 for 15 minutes and a maximum of two people) or rowing boats ($20 for 30 minutes and a maximum of four people). The boats generally operate in the afternoon.

The track around the lake forms part of the Great Dividing Trail. To walk around the lake in its entirety would take around 90 minutes.
