Hepburn/Newlyn’s Club Trip There are a number of ways to get to Hepburn Lagoon, from the club rooms allow a couple of hours, make your way to Daylesford, we’ll meet at the DAYLESFORD BAKERY 69-71 Vincent Street, Daylesford at 8:00am for a quick coffee, then make our way to the lagoon. From Daylesford driving along the Midland Hwy (A300) towards Blampied, looking for the intersection of the Midland Hwy and Daylesford-Clunes Rd, and turn right.
From the club rooms allow a couple of hrs to get to the township. Weíll meet at the boat ramp at Queenscliff Harbour which is off the roundabout on Symonds Street. Low tide is at 10:00 so plan to get the ramp at 8.
The Murrindindi is a tributary to the Yea River but is a small clear freestone stream, unlike the sandy discoloured river it flows into. Rising in the Toolangi range the Murrindindi cascades through tight forest and a significant waterfall in the upper reaches, then slows as it makes its way to the Yea River flowing through camp grounds and open paddocks. It’s only a little over an hour from the club rooms.
There are numerous access points at bridges, camp grounds and where the road hugs the river’s edge, see the attached maps.

This was an annual Club trip for many years on the Australia Day Holiday long weekend in January. Many of the long term Club members have cut their fly fishing teeth on this trip over the years. New members are encouraged to attend this trip, as there are usually plenty of fish in the River. We will endeavour to buddy you up with a more experienced member to fish with, for at least part of the weekend if possible.
