Set in scenic mountains 110km north of Melbourne, Daylesford and the adjoining town of Hepburn Springs, are regarded as the spa centres of Australia, boasting 50 per cent of the nation’s known mineral springs.

The springs tap into a 450-million-year-old volcanic basin and thousands of visitors a year testify to the therapeutic and relaxing properties of the mineral waters. Hand-pumps and taps that connect directly to the mineral waters are dotted throughout Daylesford for those who wish to 'take the waters' quite literally!

The town is also proud of the Daylesford Historical Society Museum which is regarded as home to one of Victoria’s outstanding pioneer collections. The museum is housed in the School of Mines built in 1890 to instruct team leaders in the skills of deep-lead mining.

The Cockatoo Zoo is a co-operative formed by local artists and designers to create functional sculptures, furniture, fountains and art for private homes, corporate clients. Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens are well worth a visit, while you can also book a llama to escort you on a gourmet picnic in the bush.

The must-see list also includes the Convent Gallery, an arts and craft centre and restaurant based in premises which once provided sanctuary for the Presentation Sisters.

Festivals - Steam Rally (Easter), Hepburn Swiss-Italian Festival (May), Highland Gathering (December).
