Daylesford and surrounds

Things to see and do

Cosy Tents is just a short 15 minutes drive from the famous country towns of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs. Renowned for its world class fine dining, magnificent natural surrounds and award winning day spas, these quaint little towns encompass its unique character from its early heritage of Swiss-Italian miners and surrounding natural mineral springs.

And if you are lucky enough to spend a couple of days away with us, we would also recommend exploring Castlemaine, Maldon, Trentham and Kyneton. 

So why not take advantage of the beautiful surrounds and come and explore some of our favourite places.
