It’s an age-old ritual. When travelling to Victoria’s ultimate weekend destination of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, a trip to Hepburn Bathhouse & Spa should be at the top of your itinerary. The bathhouse has been welcoming customers since the 1800s, so it’s fair to say there’s something in the water at this unique relaxation retreat.
Located amongst the most significant concentration of natural mineral water springs in Australia, Hepburn Bathhouse & Spa offers guests a unique experience to bathe in the mineral enriched water.
Absorption of such rich minerals through the skin can lead to increased wellbeing and vitality. So it’s a must try if you’re searching for a new way to nourish your mind and body. It may have opened in 1895, but it can still soothe the stresses of 21st century living with its tradition of ‘taking to the waters’.
Being located on a natural spring is always going to provide a point of difference, but the inclusion of award-winning architecture has made the retreat what it is today. The bathhouse was renovated in 2008 with a close focus on preserving the rich history of the location while keeping the establishment fresh and contemporary. While the look may be a little more modern the waters are still the authentic mineral springs that have been there right from the beginning. Deep below the ground they travel through volcanic earth to the surface. At the same time the waters absorb and collect all the good stuff including beneficial minerals.
Guests can experience the historic way of taking to the waters in a modern way through the sleekly designed bathhouse that features warmed mineral water pools. There is also a range of hydrotherapies including spa and relaxation pools, spa couches, aroma steam rooms and a therapy pool. Who knew there were so many ways to relax and unwind?
While you’re there you might as well top off the experience by indulging in the massage and body treatments. Here you can experience the natural minerals all to yourself in the private baths. Follow this up with some well deserved pampering such as body wraps, body exfoliation, massage therapies, facials and spa rituals.
It’s also important to refuel your insides: the pavilion cafe will be the cherry on top to a relaxing visit.
