Most Information Centres are open from 9.00am to 5.00pm everyday of the week and all are closed on Christmas Day. Several are open at different times and days which are indicated in the list below.

There are many historic towns and regional cities to visit in the Daylesford and Hepburn Springs area, they are all different and have their own character with many unique attractions and things to do and see.

There are many smaller towns like Newstead, Talbot, Smeaton, Macedon, Malmsbury that don’t have official ‘Visitor Information Centres’.
