The tower is a very narrow spiral staircase which leads up to an extremely narrow platform. Good 360 views of Daylesford

Located in beautiful gardens with a cafe near by. Well worth the climb up the narrow spiral stair case for the views.

Small tower at the top of the lovely gardens. Not very high with narrow winding stairs and only a small platform at the top. If you decide to go up the view is worth it.

We enjoyed the look put from the tower and the walk in the garden; it is a nice place for a picnic. I will encourage you to go up to the tower, you can have a good view of the surroundings.

Not the best lookout tower but a nice place to take a break. Tiny viewing platform at the top, cramped when having more than three people at the top.

Advertised as a highlight if the area, the tower is dirty, cramped and not really anything special. Gardens around it were nice, but this genuinely was a let-down, especially when marketed as a great spot for wedding photo's (not at all!).

A great place to take a break from the bustle of a busy weekend in Daylesfords shops & cafes. We didn't walk up the tower as previous reviews had warned about the narrow stairs.

This lookout tower is very narrow with a winding spiral staircase. The steps are extremely small & people with large feet are likely to battle with them. It's also quite dark on the seemingly relentless twisting climb up, and that combined with the grafittied walls...More
