Notice that on every street corner and in every row of shops in Daylesford and the surrounding villages is a sign offering massages and spa treatments, as well as more alternative therapies – reiki, shiatsu, bowen therapy, and more. This is the heart of spa country, and the perfect destination for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa
Visit the iconic Hepburn Bathhouse for an unforgettable experience that will rejuvenate and revitalise. A must-do activity since its inception all the way back in 1895, the Bathhouse has enjoyed a multi-million-dollar redevelopment and offers traditional communal bathing along with private treatments in The Spa. Enjoy the curative effects of mineral salts in the aroma steam room, salt therapy pool, and spa couches submerged in mineral water.
Salus Spa at the Lake House
Check in or be a day guest at the award-winning Salus Spa, situated at the Lake House. The Scandinavian style of predominantly blond woods and pale blue perfectly suits the climate of the region. Start with a relaxing soak in a treetop spa, overlooking the lake, before succumbing to the ministrations of the therapists with the Winter Bliss treatment, using the aromas of the region in a rhythmic hot-stone massage and body exfoliation.
Mineral Spa at Peppers Springs Retreat
Unwind in the Mineral Spa, part of the Peppers Springs Retreat at Hepburn Springs, just minutes from Daylesford. Begin your indulgent retreat in the 37-degree mineral water plunge pool then step into the stone bath sauna perfumed with essential oils. Move on to a body wrap using Li'Tya and Pevonia Botanica products before experiencing the ultimate in relaxation on the only soft-pak float beds in the Southern Hemisphere.
