HEPBURN SPRINGS

Get to know
the area

A lush oasis bursting with wholesome goodness, Hepburn Springs is a charming village that thrives off its natural surrounds. Offering wellness retreats and destination dining that city dwellers flock to in their droves, Hepburn Springs is an escape from the everyday. But for the lucky few, Hepburn Springs is paradise to come home to among the hills.

Lifestyle

Miners’-town-turned-health-retreat, Hepburn Springs gives so much in the way of natural wonders. 

Only a short 10-minute drive north of Daylesford, the small-town vibe of Hepburn Springs is packed full of charm, be it on the plate, in the spas or in the lush the bushland.

The village itself may be compact, but it comes bursting with character. 

Edwardian architecture dominates the streetscapes, and the influence of Swiss Italian culture still resonates throughout, particularly in the food and bathhouses. Several cafés and restaurants champion the paddock-to-plate approach, and the pubs and resident live music venue (the Palais-Hepburn) bring an endearing energy to the town centre 

The creative scene is well and truly alive with musicians, artists and writers long-inspired by Hepburn Springs’ natural beauty, be it the colourful wildflowers, Mount Franklin or the surrounding Wombat State Forest.

Outdoor enthusiasts have plenty of opportunity to get out and about, from the bushland surrounds of Hepburn Mineral Springs Reserve and Hepburn Pool to the majestic state forests. But there’s no doubt that the best way to relax is at one of the many day spas and health retreats, all of which make the most of the local mineral water supply.
