Escape to relaxation

It’s known as the ‘Spa Capital of Australia’, but there’s much more to Hepburn Shire than the mineral springs that made it famous.

Hepburn Shire is steeped in indigenous heritage and a rich migrant culture. Home to many culturally rich towns, including Clunes, Creswick, Daylesford, Hepburn Springs and Trentham, the shire boasts spectacular heritage buildings, parks, reserves and native forests.

Fine food, boutique wineries and of course the celebrated spas make it a hub of indulgence, but there is a practical side too. Local industries and boutique retail provide a wide array of job opportunities, housing is varied and affordable, and health, education and support services are in good supply.

A haven for artists, families and lovers of nature, Hepburn Shire promises a lifestyle as indulgent or active as you care to make it - all just over an hour from Melbourne.
