Lavandula Swiss-Italian Farm


Ten minutes North of Daylesford, Lavandula Swiss Italian Farm is an iconic property nestled among the rolling hills of Shepherds Flat. The 100 acre property was once farmed by Swiss-Italians, who came to Australia in the 1850's looking for new opportunities.

In the late 1980's, Carol White and her family restored and re-imagined the old dairy farm and it has become one of Victoria's most important rural properties.

European style gardens were planted out to frame and meander around the original stone buildings. Productive vegetable and herb gardens were established to supply the cafe, La Trattoria. Lavender was planted out to provide quality materials for the creation of farm-made body lotions and creams, room mists and insecticides, and essential oil.

La Trattoria eatery serves late breakfasts, morning teas, lunches and afternoon teas. Produce is sourced locally and from its own gardens. The cafe is fully licensed with a good range of local wines, beers and ciders, including its famous lavender champagne.

Lavandula hosts three major festivals each year: Autumn Harvest (May); La Primavera (October); and Lavender Harvest (January).

The beautiful garden and La Trattoria are available after-hours for outdoor European-style functions, weddings or birthdays.

Andersons Mill, Smeaton Historic Area


In a postcard setting on the banks of Birch's Creek at Smeaton, Anderson's Mill stands as a powerful reminder of an industry that flourished after the gold rush of the 1850's. Standing today much like it was over 100 years ago, the five-storey bluestone building and its magnificent iron water wheel are still in place. Anderson's Mill is located in Smeaton, north of Creswick, in an area well known for it's fertile volcanic soils and goldmining past.

Construction of the flour mill commenced in 1861 and it was operational within six months. The Oat section of the Mill was completed by the following harvest. Outbuildings such as the stables, grain store and bluestone office were added later as the operation expanded.

The water wheel was developed from designs by John Smeaton and the patterns cast locally in Ballarat at Hunt and Opie's Victoria Foundry.
