Relax in luxury with Daylesford cabins

Daylesford is a unique destination with diverse experiences, making it one of the best choices for a quiet cabin in Victoria. Among the biggest draws of Daylesford are its healing mineral springs and fine spas that boast an array of luxurious treatments, though there’s much more to the area than that. In the outdoors, you'll find endless opportunities for adventure, such as kayaking and paddleboarding on Jubilee Lake, spotting native wildlife at Lake Daylesford and hiking to the top of Wombat Hill to take in beautiful views of the landscape.
