World class wineries, natural springs, the coastal villages and alpine towns - all these you can find within a couple of hours drive from Melbourne.
Why not to travel to the towns of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, famous for the highest concentration of mineral springs in the country and their long tradition as a place of healing?
These towns reflect the character of their earliest heritage when Swiss-Italian miners and other immigrants settled here and people travelled from afar to “take the waters”. You can stay at Romantic hideaways or country resorts, visit day spas, play a game of golf, or wander through historic streetscapes, visiting numerous art galleries and trying acclaimed cuisine.
Visit a an operating bakery dating from 1866, and an olive grove. Meet local farmers at Angelica Organic Farm which produces gourmet garlic, heirloom vegetables and culinary herbs. Be educated and entertained by the winemaker in a small boutique winery, where you can taste the wine straight from the barrel.
Relax with a glass of wine and reflect on the characters you've met, the produce you've tasted, and the philosophies you've taken away.
