Daylesford Forests, Lakes and Falls

Hepburn Regional Park

This walk begins at Lake Daylesford, an artificial lake created in 1930 at the site of the Wombat Flat Diggings where gold was mined heavily in the 1850s. The walk follows the Lerderderg Track and affords an extended view of Daylesford from Cornish Hill. The track passes mullock heaps from disused mine shafts as it follows the route of the old Daylesford–Ballarat railway line to Jubilee Lake. The walk continues through the Wombat Forest and farmland to Sailors Falls which offers mineral springs and a cool lunch shelter. The return journey through the Hepburn Regional Park on the Goldfields Track gives much evidence of the gold rush era.
