Did you know that the Hepburn Springs and Daylesford area has a strong Swiss-Italian heritage? The cultural influence began with the influx of people to the area in the 1850s. If you look closely, you’ll see that many of the old buildings in the area have a distinctive Italian character.

Each year this rich heritage and its continuing influence on the area is celebrated in the annual Swiss & Italian Festival, which takes place in October. This year, events are planned between Wednesday October 19 and Sunday October 23. Activities include song and dance, artist showings, food, wine, as well as a local street parade and fireworks.

Lavandula Swiss- Italian Farm (ten minutes from Hepburn Springs) runs it’s La Primavera Festival on Sunday 23 October, including food and wine tasting, tours of the historic 1850s stone buildings and garde, and a line up of performers.

Make sure to book your Hepburn Springs accommodation during spring to join in and experience fun, music and food, and learn about the history and influences that have shaped this historic Victorian spa resort.
