Travel Australia – Take a bath in a treehouse

When was the last time you were in a treehouse? Have you ever searched for refuge in one as a child? If so, then it was most certainly not to take a hot bath but rather to hide in it with muddy knees and a book in the woods somewhere around the corner from your home. The word treehouse alone sounds so very exciting and adventurous, enticing really. Just thinking of it now, wouldn’t you want to climb into one in this instant?

In Victoria, that is the state in the south-east of Australia, you can bath in a treehouse. At the Spa of Lake House in Daylesford, they fill in a fantastic hot bath, which is sitting in a small forest and right in the trees. And while you are busy relaxing in the milk bath, there is absolutely nothing else to do but to listen to the sound of the birds. There is enough time to think of the state of the world, plan to smile wider or to dance like a bomb ... When I had a massage after the bath, I was in heaven.

Daylesford - a former gold mining town in Hepburn Shire

Daylesford is a former gold mining town in Hepburn Shire and there are lots of charming little cafes where you can eat locally made organic delicacies before you start browsing the many stores on and around Vincent Street. Do not forget to hop into the famous Paradise bookshop. The Country Hotel at Lake Daylesford opened in 1984 and is a real hideaway not far from Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria. You can not only take a walk at the lake but also in the nearby Wombat State Forest, and with a name this cute, who would be able to resist a visit? Go and climb up Wombat Hill for a view over the area.
