Locality
“'Twin' town to Daylesford joined by both our main streets, Hepburn has a shared gold mining history and is five minutes by car, yet a very different terrain and look – more a typical Australian bush town that now houses more of the spas, resorts and short-stay accommodation for which Daylesford was once better known. It too has walking trails to mineral springs you can freely sample and is surrounded on all sides by bushes, ravines and creeks where gold miners fossicked. Hence lots of kangaroos and other native animals sometimes bounding across the main street after dark -- or just standing in the middle of it so you have to drive carefully! It has less in the way of retail but other attractions are Lavandula lavender farm, the renovated Bath House and pump house pavilion, The Palais with its oldest restored sprung dance floor, a natural blowhole and bushwalking tracks. ”

“Historic buildings like the Old Macaroni Factory, Villa Parma, the Dudley and the Palais stand alongside quirky shops, cafes and restaurants - take a walk and see why we locals love it. Go to the bottom of Tenth Street, east side, and take the bush walk to the Mineral Springs Reserve.”
