If you are going to be in Melbourne for an extended period of time (more than 5 days), I would definitely recommend an excursion out to Daylesford/Hepburn Springs. It is a 90 minute drive out northwest of downtown Melbourne (less than an hour from the airport) and has beautiful scenery, as well as a big look into Australian country life without the huge drive into the bush.

This area is known as the spa capital of Australia, although many people will dispute that claim. Either way, this is an enjoyable drive, pleasurable scenery and a good backrub or facial spot!

Also, if you are going to make your way out to Daylesford make sure you let Anne12 know you are coming, and special things will be planned for sure. She is a great host and will most likely volunteer for tour guide duty (tips or buying her dinner is suggested for the good tour).

For more information on Daylesford, I have included a link to my Daylesford VT Page.
