What brought you to Daylesford, and when? I came in December of 2012 from the city, and moved to Castlemaine.  We have a house in the town center and 20 acres in Yapeen we are building an off grid eco house on.  I got a job in Daylesford and now have the pleasure of a 1/2 hour drive past Mount Franklin every day to and from work.

And what keeps you here? The love of country life. The friendliness of country people. Growing my own organic fruit and veg. Keeping bees. And seeing the stars in the night sky.

We only have 24 hours here, where should we go? Breakfast at Cliffy's. Walk it off around the lake or at the Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens. An afternoon shop at The Mill Market, or a trip to Lavendula. Then dinner at The Argus Dining Room.

Favorite place to caffeinate? The Conservatory at Peppers Mineral Springs.

Best local farmers market? The Daylesford Farmers Market, the first Saturday of every month.

Most luxurious day spa experience? The Mineral Spa at Peppers in Hepburn Springs.

We want to go wine tasting...where do you recommend? Captains Creek Organic Wines in Blampied; Passing Clouds Winery in Musk; Ellender Estate Winery in Glenlyon.

And where should we watch the sun go down? Jacksons Lookout Hepburn.

Favorite day trip outside Daylesford? I love a round trip so I would make a day out of it and head from Daylesford to Trentham through Tylden to Kyneton, Malmsbury and Glenlyon and back to Daylesford.

Who is on your stereo? Right now Flume and Chet Faker, over and over again.

And who is inspiring you right now? Anyone living his or her passion.

Words to live by...Live without fear.
