Just the name evokes thoughts of long, balmy days, playful breezes and long, cool drinks.

Summer up here is like a cocktail in a long glass - beautiful to look at, refreshing and totally relaxing. This edition of our Summer Magazine will help you plan your getaway-in-style in Melbourne’s most beautiful backyard. 

Pet owners will rejoice as we give you the inside word on where to go for a pet-friendly getaway.  No more guilt about leaving the fur-baby at home. No bones about it, (sorry), studies tell us that pets need a holiday too, so bring your extended family for a mini-escape you’ll all enjoy.  

Our friend and collaborator, Richard Cornish has penned a hauntingly beautiful story about Daylesford’s ‘lost children’. 150 years on, this remains one of Australia’s saddest stories, and yet it is one that united the people of Daylesford; and still does to this day.

And ladies, if you’ve been yearning for a girls’ weekend, check out our ‘Girlfriend Getaway’ piece. There is no better place for a fun weekend away than the Daylesford and Macedon region. We’ll  give you the inside tips to the best weekend ever.  See you in summer.  #daylesfordmacedonlife daylesfordmacedonlife.com.au
