This course will be held in the school hall at Hepburn Primary School, 156 Main Road, Hepburn 3461.

Hepburn Springs is a gorgeous central highlands village, right next door to Daylesford, 1.2 hours drive from Melbourne. The region is famed for it’s mineral springs + spas, wine and amazing local food.

Getting there:

The address of Hepburn Primary School is: 156 Main Road, Hepburn 3461. It’s 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne, and there’s plenty of parking at the school. Or there’s trains and buses to get you there that can drop you at the door – use the PTV trip planner.

Staying

Camping: The two closest official camping areas to Hepburn School are Mt Franklin campground (10 minutes drive, free camping) and Jubilee Lake campground (15 mins drive, fees apply).

Other picnic grounds that we love and recommend close by are Bryce’s Flat (down Bald Hill Road, 5 mins drive) and Tiperary Springs (off midland highway, 10 mins drive) – here’s a map of the Hepburn Regional park and all it’s picnic grounds.

Accommodation: Hepburn Springs has a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets, some of which are walking distance from the venue. And just 3 km up the road, Daylesford has even MORE accommodation options. It’s a very good place to spend a weekend.

We love the local Mooltan Guest House, our friends Meg + Patrick’s permaculture love shack in Daylesford, Kim’s Redwood Studio just down the road in Hepburn, or check out Air Bnb or local directories like DayGet.

There are many lovely walking trail and lakes in the area, and of course the Hepburn Springs Bathhouse, as well as all the public springs (take a bottle and fill it up!).

Local food options are many – highlights include Awkward Jeffrey in Daylesford who do a great local breakfast,  our nearest cafe the Blue Bean has live music fri/sat/sun nights, there’s The Surly Goat just up the road, loads of great eateries in Daylesford and if you’re into vino make sure you swing by Wine and the Country for a glass of something awesome.
