When Kate Ceberano and her crew launched the Life, Love Life Festival back in April it seemed a lifetime away – yet in a twinkling of an eye – here we are in November and making plans to visit Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges to enjoy all that at the festival has to offer.

And what better way to add some “sparkle” to your life than at this fabulous event?

Kicking off on Friday 16th till Sunday 18th November, you can choose encounters with a true pantheon of amazing local creatives from the worlds of food, wine, wellness, art, music and performance offering every imaginable opportunity to celebrate “Live. Love Life”.

The list of events and experiences seems endless and making choices of what to do and where to go is challenging. Here is just a taste: of what is on offer.

For those who are looking for some wellness activities, then try out Sunset Yoga and Meditation at Elevated Plains on Friday Saturday and Sunday 5pm - 6.30pm Audrey’s of Hepburn, or 17 Pounds Half Day Fitness & Wellness Workshops 8.30am - 1pm Shillings & Pence at 17 Pounds.

If art is your “thing” then you can get “up close and personal” on the ARTZBUS and experience the work of local artists in their own studios. The tour runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm with pick up at the Farmers’ Arms in Daylesford. With stops along the way to enjoy some of the fantastic food and drink on offer, this tour ticks all the boxes and is sure to be a festival winner.
