Near the top of Wombat Hill, in front of the gardens and overlooking Daylesford is The Convent. A very impressive building and gardens that was quite obviously a convent in the past. Impressively converted into a cafe, bar, gallery and wedding venue save at least an hour to explore it.
And before I forget you can also stay in the Penthouse at the top. There are several stories to explore if you can manage to get past the cafe at the entrance. Go downstairs and see where the nuns used to live or go up and sit in the chapel. There is plenty to see including a gift shop.
When first staying in Daylesford this was my favourite destination for Sunday breakfast. A gourmet buffet that was by far the best breakfast in Daylesford. Unfortunately not everyone likes getting up Sundays and after being there on my own it soon stopped. I don’t think I have cried so hard since. Still worth dining there regardless.
