The resort town of Hepburn Springs is known for its fine food, wine, mineral springs and world-class spas but there’s another very good reason to travel the hour from Melbourne for the ultimate indulgent weekend away.
Just minutes from the quaint township, you’ll find the luxurious Clifftop at Hepburn, which provides an escape with all the trimmings. Located on the edge of an ancient pine forest, the property has three architecturally designed two-bedroom, two-bathroom luxury villas – Evoke, Tranquility and Serenity – each have their own individual touches, such as an ’80s arcade machine or a Japanese-engineered shiatsu massage chair.
After a day of exploring, long lunching and soothing the body at the spas, soak in the villa’s Apaiser Oman stone bath, chill by the cracking imported French fireplace or stretch out on the suspended infinity daybeds – yes, really – and take in the spectacular views of the native bushland below.
Celebs who’ve stayed here include Delta Goodrem, Nick Jonas and Zoe Foster-Blake.
