Local weather for your stay in Daylesford holiday homes

Since it's set further above sea level that neighbouring Melbourne, Daylesford has a slightly cooler, wetter climate than its big-city brother. In summer, temps range from lows in the teens to highs in the 30s, while winter temps can be quite cold, from barely above freezing to about 9 °C. Mineral waters and great restaurants don't fail you when the weather changes, so Daylesford vacation rentals are popular year-round. You might find bargains in winter, when the lavender isn't in bloom or during the hottest days of summer.
