Crawl out from under the covers and clear away the cobwebs.

This detox destination will transform you from sluggish to sparkling – fully energised and invigorated for the months ahead.

‘Tis the season when we emerge from cosy hibernation. But if you need a little nudge, keep in mind that 85% of the nation’s natural mineral springs are just an hour outside of Melbourne.

The Daylesford Macedon region is a pick-me-up kind of place.

Ancient volcanic waters present the perfect tonic to wash away the winter blues and restore your energy and wellbeing. You can drink from a range of mineral springs or soak in the restorative waters of Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa.

Each spring is a unique source with distinctive healing properties and mineral make-up.
The sulphur spring at the Hepburn Mineral Springs Reserve offers an elixir for skin, respiratory and inflammatory conditions.

In Kyneton the high magnesium content makes the waters beneficial for eliminating toxins and clearing skin.

Across the region you can take to waters high in bicarbonate and sodium – from Taradale through to Daylesford or Vaughan Springs. These natural salts boost body health and balance the blood stream.
Take a dip at your local spring and you’ll get to detox and destress. Combine that with a massage or exfoliation treatment and your senses will be truly awakened.

A visit here also brings nature walks, fresh air and wholesome local produce to nourish you into seasonal wellness.

So, say farewell to winter and put a spring in your step.
