Daylesford Picnic Boxes

Daylesford Picnic Boxes

We launched Daylesford Picnic Boxes because we wanting to make picnicking in and around Daylesford easy, delicious and convenient for visitors – so we created the perfect ‘grab-and-go’ picnic.

Curated to include our favourite locally-made picnic food items, what makes our picnic boxes truly unique is that they include a ‘Picnic Keep-Kit’ to arm you with all the tools you need to be able to enjoy an impromptu picnic – all reusable and yours to keep!

Each order also unlocks our exclusive, interactive and ever-growing Daylesford Gourmet Map which shows the picnic spots within a half hour drive of Daylesford.
