Relax at the Peninsula Hot Springs

[ 1 ] June 7, 2012 | Alison Adey

Visiting the Mornington Peninsula? Don’t miss a trip to the Peninsula Hot Springs for a spa experience that will take your breath away.

Relax in the hydrotherapy pools, work up a sweat in the sauna or retreat to the darkness of the cave pool to enjoy the tranquility. There’s even a hilltop hideaway (pictured) with 360 degree views across the countryside – perfect on a cold winter morning.

How it works

The natural spring water flows from an aquifer 637m below the ground. It rises to within 10m of the surface before getting pumped into over 20 pools across the complex.

It is this process that ensures the water remains a balmy 37C – 43C. The heat helps induce blood flow and sweating, both of which release toxins and assist the healing process. The springs also contain natural minerals such as bicarbonate, magnesium, potassium and sodium.

Best time to visit

Avoid the crowds and visit the hot springs Tuesday – Thursday. Better still, get here at the crack of dawn (or when it opens at 7.30am) to enjoy the peace and quiet. Fancy a moonlit dip? As the night draws in, the lights cast eerie shadows over the bubbling pools. What better way to spend a romantic evening?

Price includes use of a locker, towel and a fluffy white bath robe – a nice touch in the cooler months. Entry $50-$60 ($30 when you book in for a spa treatment).
