Things to see and do

If you venture out to discover what the region has to offer you will not be disappointed.

Ballarat is blessed with the iconic Sovereign Hill which is a fantastic day out for all ages. Kryal Castle brings castles, knights and fair maidens into the 21st century. The Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka is a lesson in our history and the Ballarat Fine Art Gallery resides in one of the finest gold-era buildings in Victoria. A sprightly walk around the lake might only take you 45 minutes or more like 2 hours for us if you stop for a tipple. Ballarat has made a name for itself as a gourmet destination with an abundance of local cafes and cool climate wine districts nearby Captains Creek and the Blue Pyrenees are faves and the black diamond of the culinary world truffles are also grown in the region - gratuitous plug for our other farm-stay B&B and truffiere Black Cat Cottage and Trufferie.

Creswick is a beautiful little town with its own French patisserie, cheesery and Forest Resort championship golf course. You may wish to explore the many walking tracks or you may like to visit The Tangled Maze and mini golf.

Daylesford is only a 35 minute drive through picturesque countryside with cafe’s, bric a brac and antique shops. Maybe stop and have lunch on the Daylesford Lake and burn off those calories with a paddle boat ride on the lake.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Ballarat Cobwebs everywhere outside. Inside, floors could have had a good vacuum and tiles / Lino, a good wash. Thank you for the complimentary bread milk butter and condiments - very much appreciated. Quiet location and walking distance to the Botanical gardens which were lovely and the lake. Ballarat turned on the perfect weather for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful House - so lovely to stay here This is a beautiful house and the owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make it just right - even down to providing breakfast cereal and milk for the morning. Unfortunately our family was not in a great frame of mind due to personal issues, and it was a pleasure to arrive at such a war welcoming house. The house is immaculately presented, and has everything you would need to have a comfortable stay. We were only there for one night, but have no hesitation in staying there again or recommending to family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great location This house is in a great location, not far from Ballart central. It was very clean, with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, sunny outdoor patio and lots of other little extras that were provided. Would definitely recommend if you are staying in Ballarat with a family Carmel
