Daylesford Highlights - Sunday Market

Daylesford is nestled in the foothills of Victoria’s Great Dividing Range, with lakeside walks, historic bushland, natural mineral springs, unforgettable wineries and stylish day spas. It is renowned for its spa and wellbeing offering.

However, for this holiday excursion, the day spas and mineral springs that dot around the town and Hepburn Spring were not part of our iternary for the day.

The Daylesford Sunday Market was our first place of interest when we got to Daylesford. It is located at 18 Raglan Street (Midland Highway) and has plenty of FREE car parking available .....however, one tip for travellers, get there early. It operates each Sunday from 8.00 am to 3.00 or 4.00pm at Daylesford Station (rain, hail, shine or snow).

The market has a wide variety of stalls selling everything from books to spare parts for the car, fresh local produce, clothing and collectables. As far as collectables are concern, one man's trash is another man's treasure.

You can even set up a stall there, if you have something to sell. You will have to get there at about 6:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings to ensure a stall site. At the time, it'll cost you $20.00. Interested? Call (03) 5348-3503 for more information.

Oh! did I mention that it is at the Daylesford train station. It also double up as a heritage railway museum.
