With gorgeous scenery, quaint cafes and shops and of course its popular annual ChillOut festival, it’s no wonder LGBTI people are increasingly choosing Daylesford as a place to live.

Lovingly created on a massive one hectare property, this is one of the finest gardens in Australia — and you can even literally chill out here during the annual ChillOut festivities.
