All day grazing in the enchanted gardens on Wombat Hill

Our cafe sits in the playfully renovated 1940s caretaker cottage, right in the heart of Daylesford’s Botanic Gardens, established in the 1890s on a volcanic hill with spectacular views. We serve delicious breakfast, brunch & lunch in the casual country style cafe, perhaps by the open fire,  under the heated pergola or in the sunshine amongst the pretty kitchen garden.

We’re open Thursday to Monday from 9AM ’til 4PM. No reservations.


Our garden within a garden. We don’t take bookings but you can choose from one of the many spots in the sunshine in the kitchen garden or undercover in the warm courtyard pergola.


Plenty of space inside at individual and shared tables, on the bar, by the fire, or in the garden. Many items are also suitable for takeaway. There’s also picnic baskets and high tea!

A small range of beautiful mementos is available to purchase in-store and online. Toy wombats are very popular as are the Grow. Cook. Eat books which raise money for the Daylesford Primary School Kitchen Garden Program.


Looking for a delicious place to satisfy your sweet tooth? Book a casual country High Tea at Wombat Hill House. 
Served from 2pm, Thursday - Monday.

Start with a glass of sparkling followed by a selection of cakes and sandwiches, scones with cream & jam and coffee and tea to finish. It's a lovely and relaxing way to spend an afternoon and enjoy the garden views. $40 per person. Minimum of 2 guests. Bookings essential.
