You’ll find the best quality coffee, local free range eggs, rolled oats, dried fruit and nuts. There’s everything here to put together the most delicious, gourmet, energy giving, breakfast around.

Sharing a glass overlooking the treetops in your Hepburn Springs luxury accommodation wouldn’t be right without a smooth brie or Victorian vintage cheddar.

Pick up an assortment of specialty tastes to create your own local platter to enjoy.

If you’re one of the many visitors who like to stay in luxury accommodation and enjoy cooking for yourself, you’ll find plenty of inspiration and a choice of ingredients on the shelves. If you’ve already come prepared, but you need some last minute fresh or dried herbs or garlic, The Hepburn General Store is sure to have it. Plus, this reliable little shop is open 7 days a week.
