Enjoy three of Daylesford’s finest offerings in one; a Secret Forest Walk in the Wombat Forest, a trip on the Daylesford Tourist Railway and a picnic supplied by Spade To Blade catering.
Strictly limited, only two Sunday Specials are available per week, on a first in basis.
Bookings are essential.
Meet with Brendan from Secret Forest Walks at 9.00am for Trip 1, or 10.15am for Trip 2 on Sunday morning at Spade to Blade Café, opposite the Daylesford Tourist Railway Sunday Market, for an introduction to the walk and how to use the GPS over a recommended coffee/tea and a freshly baked pastry. (See itinerary below for alternate backpack arrangements).
With your fully equipped backpack containing fresh and filling items prepared by the café that morning, take your seat on a vintage Daylesford Spa Country Railway train for a 25 minute journey through farmland and forest to the hamlet of Bullarto. Activate the GPS and it will guide you on a unique and secluded walk through rich forest to a hidden reservoir picnic spot. Complete the walk and return to Daylesford at 1.20pm (Trip 1) or 2.45pm (Trip 2) for the return train from Bullarto Station.
