Hepburn Regional Park is located at Daylesford and Hepburn Springs 110 km north-west of Melbourne via the Western Freeway (M8 National). Follow the Daylesford-Ballan Road after taking the Daylesford exit from the freeway.
HeritageThe township of Hepburn was named after Captain John Hepburn, one of the first European settlers in the area, who made his home in Smeaton in 1836. Gold was first discovered in Daylesford in 1851 and by 1855, thousands of diggers were active as new fields were opened. Many Swiss and Italian miners made their way to the diggings during the gold rush and the influence they had on the area remains in their descendants, distinctive architecture and local culinary delights. The annual Swiss-Italian Festival is held in Daylesford and Hepburn Springs in May.
