There's something about trip to the spa that has a way of whisking you away from your normal life. But while going to a day spa is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle for a day, sometimes it's worth going farther afield. To truly transport yourself. That's where regional spa retreats come in.
Some of these places are prized for their mineral pools (looking at you, Hepburn Springs), others have renowned massages, while others just have comprehensive beauty treatment menus that cover every base you could imagine.
You can stay for the night at most of these places, if you're in need of a longer retreat. Those who don't are never too far from some of Victoria's best accommodation.
