Our Favourite 3 Walking Trails

Bryce's Flat, the Blowhole & Breakneck Gorge

A Daylesford must-do for all hiking enthusiasts looking for a short taste of the 210km Goldfields Track. This experience is perfect for local explorers offering a wide variety and view of the scenic bushland and flora and the promise of native wildlife encounters. Starting off in Bryces Flat simply follow the clear and well-positioned signs to the Blowhole across Sailors Creek and up the main track. Stop in at the Blowhole, it a diversion tunnel created in the late 1800's on Sailors Creek that was designed to help gold rush era minors expose the gold in the water. It received its name rightfully so, as after heavy rainfall it appears to shoot water. A narrow track along the Great Dividing Trail leads to Breakneck Gorge. Stay on the walking tracks to avoid mineshafts.
