Time Out Melbourne

The old mansion overlooks Daylesford and all that it has to offer. It includes an impressive gallery as well as a number of function spaces.

Ghost Tours:
Convents are scary enough even when the nuns are still alive (although that may just be my Catholic upbringing talking), but wandering around a long defunct, nun-less convent in the black of night and you have a pretty literal description of terror. Even worse, the Daylesford Convent used to be a boarding school as well. Ghost nuns and ghost children? You’ve got to be kidding me. I bet the children sing ‘Ring-a-ring-a-roses’, too. Just before they push you down the stairs. All in all, a perfect recipe for a ghost tour, then! There’s two sessions a month, with the next happening on October 29. Price is $45, including coffee and wine.
