One of my favourite spots for a weekend getaway is Daylesford, Victoria’s very own spa country. Daylesford is a peaceful and tranquil town which first became famous for its mineral springs and spas. Now it has blossomed into a well-deserved foodie destination in its own right, for its rich produce and award-winning restaurants. Whether it’s a cosy escape to a log cabin in winter or a lakeside cottage in summer, Daylesford is certainly a town which is fit for the seasons.
I have always loved travelling, adventuring and discovering new places. What I love the most about my job is meeting so many passionate local producers and finding out their stories, their passions and what makes them tick. For me this is what really brings a company to life. One day my friend, Jodi Flockhart (actor and owner of Sault Restaurant) were catching up with a coffee and an idea blossomed – Two Girls on a Road trip to share our mutual passion of local food, travel and producers. The project aims to share the adventures of two girls who are passionate about great food, accommodation, travel, health and well-being.
The pilot episode for Two Girls and a Road Trip was filmed in Daylesford and showcases local businesses and producers including Sault Restaurant, Kazukis, Wine and the Country, Belvedere Social and Eko Day Spa. It also includes a sneak peek of Lynda Gardener’s ‘The Estate Trentham’ and a visit to local artist Bridget Bodenham and local stone mason Josh Bowes. Stills were captured by Jo O’Kelly and filming by Little Cinema and Burning House.
Hope you enjoy the pilot and stay tuned for our next adventure!
