“A Visit every Traveler should take at least once in their Lifetime”
Spa Country of Australia Typically on a Friday afternoon I am always much happier to go to work and be home in the afternoon, why you might ask…because it’s the start of the weekend. A time to relax, rewind and refresh.
However little did I know that this time around I would find myself in the middle of Australia’s Spa Country located in Daylesford and Hepburn Springs in Victoria a State on Australia’s East Coast.
After arriving at our Accommodation within the heart of Daylesford in a work Ute, a tent and three sleeping bags (yes, you are reading correctly…), so typically called Australia’s Spa Country’, possibly so for a pretty good reason too, it was time to start the relaxation process by heading out for Dinner and a nice glass of wine at the local Daylesford Hotel, a cozy yet vintage looking interior makes it all the better.
The next Morning it was time to get up bright and early and head out on a walk around Lake Daylesford, despite it being quite cool during the Autumn Months it was so incredibly stunning to stroll past the variety of trees (not that I took too much notice to talk about trees in my blog), and see the beautiful leaves and color changes within, watch a platypus relax by the banks of the Lake and feed the local ducks some bread before heading into town for a nice Hot Chocolate and breakfast at my absolute favorite spot – The Daylesford Bakery.
Then it was off to an incredible Spa Treatment at Hepburn Bathhouse & Spa, little did I know I was in for quite the surprise. Upon entry we were supplied with a towel, for the Bathhouse and Bathrobe, slippers for our treatment that afternoon. The Bathhouse was made up of a Relaxation pool, heated to 32C which was quite pleasant and also designed for some light water activity and exercises. The Spa Pool within the public area was heated to 35C, a great place to relax and combine the traditional aspects of hydrotherapy. Within the Private Area was the Spa Couches, one word – Ultimate Relaxation.
In addition to the 43C heated Stream room, an ideal place to clear the mind. And last but not least the Sanctuary – A salt therapy pool with a wonderful relaxing atmosphere, an intimate space with concentrated salt water. Having spent the past 2 hours in the bathhouse and Spa was then followed by a visit to the Pavilion Café for a Champagne Tea, followed by a change into the bathrobe and slippers for a one hour Couples Relaxation Massage. I have never felt so relaxed, rejuvenated and refreshed afterwards!
Definitely a place to visit when you get the chance.
