Daylesford has to be one of my favourite Victorian towns. We used to spend summer holidays there when I was a kid and still, we visit whenever we get the chance. The old gold mining town that just happened to have mineral springs has now become a trendy weekend escape for city folk in need of a little pampering and the best of food.
One thing that hasn’t changed in Daylesford is the intriguing iron fountain in the centre of town. It has a base of horses’ hooves and I wonder if it was ever used as a horse trough? If anyone out there has the answer I’d love to know.
