We'll make our way to the Victorian Goldfields region with our first stop in Daylesford where upon arrival we'll have time to explore and enjoy lunch at one of the many cafes dotted along the main street. We then continue onto Kyneton where there's time to explore the historic Piper Street with its eclectic collection of shops, galleries and eateries. Afterwards, we'll travel to Castlemaine to check into our hotel before getting dressed up to enjoy a night of fun and festivities; the annual Maldon Twilight Festival. With a picnic hamper style dinner included (drinks additional - no BYO allowed), soak up the surrounds of this beautiful historic town and when the lights go down feel free to dance like no one is watching to the fabulous entertainment provided.
