Great experience. Such a wonderful way to add some extra fun to an awesome walk around the lake and natural mineral spring sites. The guide was very friendly and helpful and a pleasure to chat to. Highly recommend this tour. Took about 1.5 hours.

Had such a wonderful time on this walk, organised by Brendan. We had a party of 11, and opted for the Bullarto long walk (approx. 11km) and a picnic lunch catered by local cafe Spade to Blade. It was a freezing day with gentle mist, but this honestly didn’t detract from how lovely it was and what a great activity this was! Great for social distancing and fresh air in the time of COVID-19, and the walk was perfect for our group. The picnic was absolutely delicious, and they were able to plentifully cater for some vegans and vegetarians in our group. Brendan set this up for us, and met us about two hours into the hike with hot soup and so much food we could barely walk the rest of the way! Thanks to Brendan from all of us- I know they could easily cater for shorter walks and I would absolutely recommend this for anyone (local or from abroad) looking for a way to explore local food and nature!

Thanks very much Emma I personally think this is the best time of the year in the forest, so it was great to host you and your lovely friends for the walk. Spade to Blade catering in Daylesford and Secret Forest Walks definitely make a pretty good combination. I will pass on your compliments to the chef. All the best with your current and future developments. Cheers Brendan

We really enjoyed the Great Lakes walk, the flexibility was good, and Brendan was very helpful. The backpack with water, snacks, was useful.

Thanks Vaughn. I am very pleased that the Great Lakes Walk fitted the bill for you both. There is so much natural beauty within Daylesford, just needs the local knowledge to link them all together. Cheers Brendan

We were greeted with a friendly and bubbly host Brendan. The treasure hunt is approx 1.5 hours through the picturesque scenery of Lake Daylesford. Fun and family bonding time with 5km burnt from the walk.
