Last year Council asked the community how we could make Lake Daylesford a better place for locals and visitors. The Resurrection of Lake Daylesford Project received a significant boost with the announcement of $250,000 in funding from Regional Development Victoria. This will combine with $130,000 funding from Hepburn Shire Council.
The resurrection of Lake Daylesford will enhance the user and visitor experience with improvements to: community information, interpretative and way-finding signage; path surfaces and maintenance and other public accesses; public toilets; Lake foreshore including paths, seating, planting and play; jetty surrounds; weed control and revegetation; tree and other plantings; Central Springs including shelter, paths, furniture and plantings; and, furniture renewal.
Works have already commenced with the construction of a gravel path around the south end of the Lake. Other initial works will include the removal of a number of woody weed species (mainly Willows) and revegetation with indigenous plantings at the south end of the Lake.
Please be aware that there will be workers and machines on site and some areas may be closed for the period of construction. We seek your understanding for the interruption and inconvenience that the works may cause.
