Even if you are not into golf this is a great place to stay with a family to explore the goldfields region. The Resort is close to Daylesford, Clunes and Ballarat that have a rich history along with markets, galleries and dining. The resort has great bike hire, they provide "Specialized" bikes, it is rare to have such good bikes...

The township of Creswick is a short 5 minute drive away and has many lovely cafes to enjoy. Ballarat is about...

The golf course needs some work but is still challenging to play. Breakfast was sumptuous. During school holidays the pool is very busy with children The various...

Mentioned all of this at desk but only some written down. Went to spend time around pool but not enough chairs or lounges-all full. Have stayed at other racv resorts and...
