Heathcote has a history of offering weary travellers a place to rest their head, and these days there are more options than ever before.
Perhaps you are looking for five-star luxury; or a great little caravan park? A fabulous farm stay with beautiful views and lots to learn, or a neat little place in the centre of town close to wine, coffee and food venues? Self-contained; a bed and breakfast or maybe an eco-cabin? Regardless of your needs, Heathcote has you covered.
Being just a little over half an hour from historic Bendigo, and around 90 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, Heathcote is the perfect place to call home while you explore the goldfields region of central Victoria.
A weekend in Heathcote is good for body and soul. Wander down the picturesque main street and enjoy a leisurely breakfast at one of the many delicious cafes, then take a drive through the forests before visiting a local winery – many of which offer great lunch options. Head back to town and stop at the magical Pink Cliffs for sunset, before heading to the unique Heathcote Harvest for dinner. On Sunday, there’s always a market nearby or perhaps enjoy a leisurely ride along the iconic O’Keefe Trail before heading home (with a bottle or two of shiraz, of course!)
