Hepburn Pool, Hepburn Springs

This page respectfully acknowledges the indigenous peoples who occupied this site.

Hepburn Pool is located on Spring Creek within the Hepburn Mineral Springs Reserve in Hepburn Springs and was included on the Victorian Heritage Register following a nomination and comparative analysis of pre-Olympic Swimming Pools in Victoria by Lisa Gervasoni.

The pool is created by a concrete weir and dry-stone walling of a natural basin in Spring Creek. Terraced drystone seating surrounds the pool. The weir features an outlet value which ensures environmental flows into Spring Creek.

The pool was of Olympic size and was an early competition pool which hosted Victorian swimming championships in the 1930s. The pool filled with silt and in 1993-95 was conserved by volunteers led by (Publican) Merv Keating of the Savoia Hotel using old photographs to replicate missing features such as seating.

The Pool was named Victoria's Favourite Built Place in 2004 as part of the Victorian Government's involvement in the International Year of the Built Environment.
