A Day in the Country
This is not your average spot for a picnic.

Situated in the small village of Hepburn Springs, approximately 5 kilometres out of the larger town of Daylesford, it is the perfect bush retreat.

The large area boasts multiple areas for a picnic, the main one having a kids playground. There are also public barbecues and amenities, as well as a cafe.

To take in the magnificent scenery, there are many walks throughout the surrounding bush. There is something for everyone, from a short 5 minute stroll across a bridge, great for taking a few snaps, to longer hikes for the more adventurous.

Bring some empty water botles to taste the natural mineral water, taken from springs on the grounds. It's not to everyone's taste, but many locals drink it on a regular basis.

The complex is also perfect for those aiming to wind down from their busy lives. It boasts a luxurious spa, The Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa, which utilizes the mineral water. It offers a relaxation pool and traditional spa therapies.

If one day isn't enough, there are also many nearby accommodation options.
