Taste the Mineral Water
You can fill up your water jug with the mineral water...so Bill thought he'd fill it to the brim...to find out it wasn't like the sparkling mineral he thought it would be. It's fun to give it a taste...but I think you have to get acquired to the taste. It's pretty neat to...
Hanging Rock is fairly close by...and has a neat story connected to it...and is a neat way to spend a couple hours. It also has a really nice cafe for lunch or afternoon tea....otherwise...give their wine a taste....
Daylesford and Hepburn Springs are known for their spas....While my husband went golfing ...I went "spa"ing...I was not able to afford much when we came here...so I opted for the Ovada Spa right on Main Street. I was pretty impressed by the website, so I decided to give it a...

Palais Theatre: Sleepy Town's Local Nightlife

Bull and Boar
The Bull Boar sausage has been a popular meat with the locals for many years.
Original recipes that have been handed down from generation to generationand are held close to their chests, they are secret!!!
The decendants of the Swiss/Italians in the area were the makers of these sausages.
As the name suggest they are made of Bull and Boar, with loads of garlic, red wine and other secret spices.
You can buy them at the two butcher shops in Daylesford.
These sausages can be boiled, grilled, BBQ or you can hang them up to dry.
WARNING......if one person in the family eats them......ALL should:)))
