Rummage: Treasures of the Gold Rush Region

We all love to rummage. It’s the possibility of discovery, of finding treasures hidden within known and familiar things. From beautifully formed furniture to entomological specimens and relics from the Gold Rush era, Daylesford offers many avenues through which to explore, discover and seek out rare or coveted vintage pieces steeped in Central Victorian history.

Stay the weekend and discover what’s local. We love…
