Shepherds Flat: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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 1850s looking for new opportunities.

In the late 1980s, 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.

Chocolate Mill


Located seven kilometres north of Daylesford, Chocolate Mill is in a straw-bale building, designed and built by the original owners. Nicki and Adrian Straton took over the business in January 2014 and are excited to expand further and develop the iconic Chocolate Mill. No changes to the fantastic chocolate, only enhancements.

The Chocolate Mill pride themselves on being there for the serious chocoholic where fresh chocolate is made the old fashioned European way, before mass production took over. The idea is to create something from scratch, the way things used to be made, from the building construction to the way they make their chocolates and run the business.

By using natural ingredients and quality European chocolate and staying away from palm oil, preservatives and additives the Chocolate Mill can focus on quality and personal customer service with strong product knowledge. The Chocolate Mill make and sell the product exclusively on-site to over 2000 customers per week, melting down over a tonne of chocolate per month, imported from Belgium.

The Chocolate Mill Hot Chocolate Cafe serves award-winning hot chocolates, locally sourced espresso coffee, cakes, tarts (try the salted caramel with Belgian Chocolate ganache with double cream) plus light refreshments (wraps) drinks and ice-cream sundaes to die for.

The Chocolate Mill have appeared on Getaway, Post-Cards, Coxy's Big Break and have also appeared in Epicure and the Herald Sun many times. The Chocolate Mill also won an RACV small business award and was voted number 11 in Victoria's Top 101 Best Tourism Experiences in 2010. The Chocolate Mill also won the Herald Sun Best Hot Chocolate in 2010.
