Daylesford

Daylesford

Daylesford is now known for its tourism, especially its “healing waters”, but who realises that it was the foresight of our early Italian settlers that protected the spas around the district and knew about their therapeutic values? Italian and Swiss settlers like the Gervasoni’s built stone homes at Yandoit, that can still be seen today. At Cricket Willow you can purchase cricket bats from the willows planted many years ago by Tinetti’s or maybe play a game on the beautifully kept oval. Villa Parma and the Macaroni factory are other attractions to this small locality near Ballarat.
