Hepburn Shire is located in central Victoria, just over an hour from Melbourne. The region is renowned for its natural beauty and mineral springs. The eastern part of the Shire is hilly, with high rainfall and significant native forests. The west has medium to lower rainfall and broad acre farming land.
The shire's economic base is in agriculture, forestry, manufacturing and tourism. Tourism is most popular around the Daylesford-Hepburn Springs mineral springs. Tourism, the arts, service industries, retailing, education and health and community services are growing rapidly.
