Some days you just need to take some time out to relax and enjoy and take in the sights – especially when said sights are as bright and uplifting as flowers and butterflies. ASQ Skydancers is a haven just off the highway between Castlemaine and Harcourt, featuring a nursery, a fully-licensed cafe, a butterfly garden and a unique range of gifts and homewares.

The butterfly garden is home to a flutter of butterflies from October to May, making summer the perfect time to visit. Butterflies are winners with the young and young at heart. Their light and aerial natures and colourful forms can brighten many a dull day and further brighten a summer day.

If you’re in the middle of a road trip, or even setting out, ASQ Skydancers has an extensive menu with breakfast and lunch options, plus coffee and cake for everyone. And for those in need of some cool refreshments with a kick the cafe has a list of local wines, beers and cider. Visit the website for more details www.asq.net.au
