Hepburn Springs

Hepburn Springs is a historic village located in the middle of the largest concentration of mineral springs in Australia. The natural springs are full of health-giving minerals and every spring has a distinctive taste. The village enjoys a reputation as a very cosmopolitan community. Enjoy a coffee at one of the cafes and restaurants along Main Road or a beer at the local historic country pub. You can catch some great live music at the Palais or look for gifts, local produce and art and craft in one of the many unique shops and small galleries. Take the Historic Village Walk and discover the splendid architecture of many public buildings. Hepburn Springs is becoming increasingly well-known for its resident masseurs and holistic therapists. Indulge in hydrotherapy, massage and beauty therapy at one of many day spas and wellness centres or book an in-house massage. The famous Hepburn Bathhouse is a mecca for the health-conscious and those who like to be pampered. Walk through Hepburn Regional Park in spring and see colourful wildflowers and a wide range of animals and birds that inhabit the area. Serious hikers can take a longer walk, along the 16-kilometre Tipperary Track and explore natural wonders such as Sailors Falls, Mount Franklin, the Blowhole and the Hepburn Pool. You can always spend a relaxing afternoon exploring the Hepburn Springs Mineral Springs Reserve. Sample the mineral waters from the hand pumps and continuous-flow pipes or enjoy a picnic under the trees. You can bottle and drink the water free of charge. Take in the glorious sights and smells of the historic Lavandula Swiss Italian Farm, with lavender fields in bloom from November through to February. Join in the community celebrations during the Lavender Harvest Festival in January. A round of golf on Hepburn Springs' delightful 18-hole golf course is another great way to spend the day. Hepburn Springs is just over one hour from Melbourne on the Western Freeway and Midland Highway, and three kilometres from Daylesford. V/Line has services from Melbourne via Woodend and Ballan.

Hepburn Springs Village


You'll come for the water and stay for the wine, not to mention the food.

From cosy pubs and cafes, to Epicurean Chef hat delights and fantastic paddock to plate experiences. Let's not forget the walks, pampering, fresh air and peacefulness.

The magic of Hepburn Springs was discovered by Swiss Italian miners back in the 1850's. Their legacy remains evident in beautiful buildings like Villa Parma and the old Macaroni Factory and in the occasional ruin you will discover whilst walking.

Of course, there's the water. Hepburn Springs is blessed with 80 percent of Australia's natural mineral springs. Sample these directly from the source by filling your bottle from one of the springs or discover the water's healing properties when you relax in one of the luxurious boutique day spas or the iconic Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa.

Hepburn Springs is home to artists, musicians, writers, makers, natural healers, quirky shops, galleries, conferencing and accommodation. People who do a lot of things and those of do very little.

Hepburn Springs Village bids you welcome to one of the most perfect places on Earth.

So pack your bags and stay a while.
