Peninsula Hot Springs is a natural hot springs and day spa centre in Fingal on the Mornington Peninsula. It’s the perfect place to relax and recover after the post-Christmas madness.
The general Bath House bathing area features over 20 open air natural thermal mineral pools set out over a hillside. Each pool has a different theme and with water ranging between 37°C and 43°C. The mineral springs are said to help skin conditions, improve circulation, alleviate muscle stiffness and articular rheumatism.
You can move from pool to pool and enjoy features such as the cave pool, reflexology walk, Turkish steam bath (Hamam), sauna, cold plunge pools and massaging thermal mineral showers.
Head first to the stunning hilltop pool where you relax in the warm water while admiring the panoramic views of the Mornington Peninsula. It’s a unique and amazing experience and shouldn’t be missed. After 10am it’s for adults only.
If you are likely to be moving from pool to pool frequently then a bathrobe (rather than a towel) is essential – it can be very cold and breezy as soon as you get out of the water. Don’t worry if you forget your water bottle – it’s important to keep hydrated but there are water fountains around and it’s one less thing to carry.
Those without young kids can enjoy The Spa Dreaming Centre. It is reserved for guests 16 years or older and offers a choice of thermal mineral pools, indoor private bathing pavilions, outdoor private pools, saunas, a Hamam and spa treatments.
During peak times (Friday to Monday and holiday periods) it is essential to pre-book your bathing. Bookings are also recommended during off-peak times to prevent disappointment.
Peninsula Hot Springs is a unique place to bathe, relax and dine just 75 minutes from Melbourne CBD. Go early in the morning or late at night for a quieter, more serene experience – you could even time it for sunset or sunrise for the best views.
