Wombat Hill House


Simple & delicious seasonal food, sourced locally wherever possible
and served in one of Daylesford’s most beautiful locations-
the Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens.


Wombat Hill House was opened by the team at Lake House in 2011 with the aim of creating a casual country cafe where people could enjoy all-day dining in a relaxed and pretty setting.  Eat in, take away, grab a coffee whilst walking your dog, order a picnic, draw a stool up at the bar and stay awhile. Wombat Hill House aims to welcome all to enjoy this beautiful part of our village.

Don’t miss Allan Wolf-Tasker’s whimsical ‘enchanted garden’ mural painted directly onto the cafe walls.


We offer simple seasonal food, sourced locally wherever possible. We don’t publish our menu as it changes often; however, there are always a few vegetarian and vegan options available. Most menu items can be made to take away. We can even lend you a picnic basket and recommend some good spots for an afternoon of relaxation under the trees.

You’ll find fresh seasonal juices, smoothies, kefirs, local sodas, cocktails, cider, beer, wine by the glass and bottle to enjoy on the premises.



Looking for a delicious place to satisfy your sweet tooth? Book a casual country High Tea at Wombat Hill House.
