Melbourne to Daylesford Itinerary

Day 1: Melbourne to Daylesford/Hepburn Springs

Heading out of Melbourne along the M8 Western Freeway, take the Ballan exit for Daylesford and follow the signs. Navigating the crisp mountain roads surrounded by fern gullies, think bushland and eucalypts high in the Great Dividing Range you'll find the Spa Country icons of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs.

Renowned as Victoria's indulgence capital, Spa Country, the Macedon Ranges and Daylesford are home to stunning scenery, historic buildings, gourmet food and fine wine. The Mineral Springs of Hepburn Springs are also a fascinating spa alternative as the refreshing mineral spring water bubbles freely from the ground.

An alternative route to Melbourne from Daylesford is via the Calder Freeway which explores Hanging Rock and Mt Macedon.
