Hepburn Springs

Life in the historic Victorian village of Hepburn Springs centres on the enriching effects of water, from luxury spas to decadent food and wine and the lush environment.

Hepburn Springs is located amid the largest concentration of mineral springs in Australia, which are full of health-giving minerals. The old-fashioned pumps and pipes in Hepburn Springs Mineral Springs Reserve offer a taste of the different mineral formulations. Experience the benefits at a local spa and wellness centre. The lavishly refurbished Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa, established in 1895, offers hydrotherapy, massage and beauty therapy.

Hepburn Springs was established during Victoria's 1850s gold rush by Swiss Italian migrants. Their legacy can be felt at the cafes and restaurants along Main Road or the local country pubs. Surrounding vineyards and farms are laden with fresh produce and fine wines to take home as the ultimate souvenirs. Seasonal harvest festivals at Lavandula Swiss Italian Farm celebrates the regional heritage and the local bounty.

Look for gifts and art and craft in one of Hepburn Springs' unique shops and small galleries. Take the Historic Village Walk and discover the splendid gold rush architecture of many public buildings.

Walk through Hepburn Regional Park in spring and see colourful wildflowers and the wide range of animals and birds that inhabit the area. Serious hikers can set out along the 16-kilometre Tipperary Track and explore natural wonders such as Sailors Falls, Mount Franklin, the Blowhole and the Hepburn Pool. A round of golf on Hepburn Springs' 18-hole golf course is another great way to spend the day.
