Live Love Life Weekend
Work on your 'wellness' at a weekend of meditation classes, spa sessions and cooking workshops in Daylesford.
If you're conscious of sneaking in a bit of 'me' time and self-care before the silly season starts, it could be the perfect time for a little jaunt to Daylesford.
From November 16–18, the town, which sits just an hour and a half northwest of the CBD, will play host to the inaugural Live Love Life Weekend. It'll showcase Daylesford as one of regional Victoria's most celebrated wellness destinations, and some of the holistic, health-giving goodness it has to offer.
The weekend's program is packed full of food, wine and immersive wellness experiences, from yoga classes and free daily meditation sessions, to a range of expert-led workshops. Break out of your comfort zone with a circus workshop, or let acclaimed chefs Sam Gowing and Alla Wolf-Tasker teach you the art of making meals both healthy and delicious, at the Food as Medicine cooking class.
Elsewhere, Tivoli Road Bakery's Michael James leads a class sharing his secrets to crafting beautiful bread, historic local pub The Farmers Arms hosts a series of produce-driven lunches, and Lavandula Swiss Italian Farm is the setting for a day of springtime pampering, including massage, yoga, meditation, reiki, art and dips in the mineral springs.
