Countryside escapes don't get much more private or more intimate than a stay at the gorgeous Kurrajong Retreat in Hepburn Springs. This contemporary one-bedroom villa, set on 2 hectares of private grounds, promises a delightfully peaceful getaway with only nature and the resident kangaroos and ducks as your company.
Everything that you need for a relaxing romantic getaway is available at Kurrajong Retreat. The property’s location is an easy walk from a number of cafes and shops, as well as the Hepburn Golf Course. It’s also the ideal base for exploring the many mineral day spas that the region is famous for, including Hepburn Bathhouse & Spa. Here, you can pamper yourself with a rejuvenating spa treatment — the perfect antidote for stress.
You’ve struck it rich if you get to spend a weekend (or more) at Kurrajong Retreat in this unique piece of Victoria.
Around 150 years ago, the Daylesford and Macedon Ranges were bristling with gold rush fever which brought instant prosperity into this part of the Great Dividing Range, a legacy you can clearly see when driving around the lavish homesteads and historic streetscapes.
These days, it’s not only renowned for its high concentration of natural mineral springs, it is also a haven for provedores, locavores, restaurateurs and vignerons alike who have made the tree-change for a more sustainable way of life.
But there is so much more to do than eat, drink and get pampered! No wonder this regional gem is
marked as a top spot for a great getaway – you’ll be hard pressed to fit everything in.
With this in mind, Kurrajong Retreat, the latest venture by owner Geoff Gedge, was designed to provide couples with that kind of get away that we all need from time to time, to just get closer to each other.
