A lavender farm, country house and cafe in the Daylesford-Macedon Ranges.
June 03, 2020
You can disappear into a dreamy world of purple haze and super-relaxing aromas at Lavandula. This extraordinary lavender farm is like a scene straight out of the south of France with 1850s-style stone buildings, floral archways, stone pathways and sweeping views of the surrounding ranges.
Depending on when you visit, the best of the season will be on show — think the amber tones of autumn and a floral sea throughout spring and summer. On top of the lavender fields, there are flourishing veggie and herb gardens, which provide produce for the onsite cafe. Grab an antipasti board, woodfired pizza or house-made scones to enjoy with lavender cordial or honey in the garden. Afterwards, poke your head into the barn that houses a gift shop peddling essential oils, beauty products and more.
Lavandula is open 10.30am–5.30pm from Friday to Tuesday between September and May, and on weekends from 10.30am–5.30pm between June and August. Entry is $4 per person and dogs are welcome on leash.
