Hepburn Springs is a resort town located in the middle of the largest concentration of mineral springs in Australia. Hepburn and Hepburn Springs are twin towns which are often badged together under the Hepburn Springs name. Both villages were located on the Jim Crow Diggings and the towns were settled by miners in the 1850s, predominantly from China, England, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and France. Today the village is known as a tourist destination spa town where visitors can sample the local mineral waters, and has spa and massage retreats, three cafes, six restaurants, four food takeaway venues, two pubs, a live music venue, three bars, a general store, shops, and galleries.
Hepburn Springs is predominantly Edwardian architecture unlike the Victorian architecture of nearby Daylesford. This is due to the devastation of the 1906 bushfire which destroyed most buildings in the settlement. The town is located in the Wombat State Forest between former volcanoes—Mt Franklin and Wombat Hill. The prevalence of mineral water in the area is related to the distance from the great dividing range and the volcanic nature of the geology.
Indulge in the enriching effects of water as it flows through Hepburn Springs, from luxury spas, to decadent food and wine and the lush environment. Taste the different mineral formulations at old-fashioned pumps and pipes in Hepburn Springs Mineral Springs Reserve.
Your mind and body will also experience the benefits of these health-giving minerals at a local spa and wellness centre. Soak up local history and indulge in hydrotherapy, massage and beauty therapy at the lavishly refurbished Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa, established in 1895.
