breakneck gorge


Here is monthly snapshot of what you can expect to experience if you stay at Breakneck Gorge Retreat. Action both on and off the property!

Lavandula Lavender Harvest - just 2 minutes down the road. Gourmet food consumed to the aroma of freshly harvested lavender.
Garden of St Erth Festival - a beautiful open garden at Blackwood. Or stay at home, wander the gardens surrounding the Retreat and eat fresh plums and apples from the laden fruit trees.
Chill Out Festival - big city action with a country twist during the regions gay and lesbian festival (Australia's biggest). Not much grass around at this time of the year but a great chance to hand feed the Angus steers or do some bird watching at the large aviary filled will chooks, ducks, turkeys, finches and canaries!
Swiss Italian Festival - local heritage brought to life in the main street of Hepburn Springs. Enjoy an extended autumn break over Easter.
Visit the all year round open-air Sunday market at the station in Daylesford or travel further afield to the local farmers’ markets and the boutique wineries.
The season has changed and hot spas, open fires and delicious dinners are the order of the day.
If you are lucky you might wake up to snow!
While the wild life definitely has a mind of its own kangaroos lazing in the sun is a likely sight from your couch - especially the mob of 150 who have made Breakneck Gorge their home.
A great time to walk the local tracks especially to the famous Blowhole.
A splash of colour in the garden with fresh cherry blossom and tulips plus paddocks dotted with clusters of wild irises and daffodils.
Daylesford Agricultural Show - a taste of country life.
Highland Gathering and chance to grab some piece and quiet in this idyllic setting in the often hectic lead up to Christmas.
