Peninsula Hot Springs was founded in 1997, years after geothermal waters were first discovered in Mornington Peninsula. Inspired by the founders’ experience of bathing in Japanese hot springs, the resort offers a range of pools and spa treatments designed to relax you physically and mentally. Today the resort offers guests over 50 pools in two different areas, but make sure to book early, as over 450,000 people visit every year and the number of tickets is limited so that guests can enjoy the area in peace.

5 Tips for Visiting the Peninsula Hot Springs

The pools of the hot springs are extremely Instagrammable, especially the stunning hilltop pool. They are set into the incredible natural landscape of the peninsula and your pictures are sure to make the folks back home jealous of your trip. Just remember to be mindful of the privacy of other visitors bathing while taking photographs or filming.

Check the weather forecast before you visit! A trip to the springs is ideal in winter to warm you up, but bring a plastic bag to keep your towels and shoes dry while you swim if rain is predicted. In autumn or winter, you’ll probably need to bring or rent a robe for traveling between the thermal pools!
The Bath House area can be extremely busy, especially during school holidays and weekends. To avoid the crowds, try visiting on a Sunday evening or mid-week. In general, the Spa Dreaming Centre is also less busy as it’s reserved for visitors aged 16 and over so there won’t be any family groups.
If you really dislike crowds, or you want to book an exclusive or romantic experience, private bathing packages are available. Choose between the private outdoor bath or the indoor bathing pavilion. If you choose the indoor bathing pavilion option, you’ll get to choose between adding tulsi tea, lavender milk, or essential oil to your bath for an even more relaxing experience.
Rather than carrying your wallet or purse around, or having to dash back to the lockers to fetch it, pick up a freedom wristband. Preload funds onto it when you arrive, then use it to pay for food, drinks, or other items during your visit. When you return your wristband, a member of staff will return any unused credit to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Peninsula Hot Springs?

Peninsula Hot Springs is the brainchild of brothers Charles and Richard Davidson. While Charles was living in Japan in 1992 he discovered the Japanese tradition of onsens - hot spring bathing. On his return to Australia, he and his brother discovered that hot geothermal waters had been discovered on Mornington Peninsula, and they founded the springs. After boring over 2980 feet (637 meters), they struck an aquifer with water naturally heated to 129 degrees Fahrenheit (54 degrees Celsius). The Spa Dreaming Center opened in 2005, with the Bath House following in 2009 and even more development planned for the future. Today the resort offers more than 50 pools heated to a range of temperatures from 96.8 to 107.6 degrees Fahrenheit (36 to 42 degrees Celsius), perfect for relaxing even in winter or on rainy days. Expansion is also planned in the near future, with the resort having plans for glamping facilities and a new set of family changing rooms. Read more.

What wellness treatments are available at the springs?

There are plenty of wellness treatments available for those who want to fully unwind. From more active experiences, such as yoga classes, aerial yoga, and pilates, to discovering new therapies in a guided workshop (including hot-cold therapy and body clay rituals), there’s something for everyone to enjoy. For those who prefer to lie back and enjoy being pampered, the resort offers spa treatments including a range of facials, body exfoliation, different styles of massages, and hair and scalp treatments. Several of these can be combined with a day of bathing to create your ideal day of rest and relaxation. There are also some free wellness activities included in tickets to the Bath House. Hot Springs Yoga takes place at 12.30 pm every Saturday and Sunday, while gentle warm water exercise classes take place at 7.30 am on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for early birds. Read more.

What should I bring with me?

Make sure to pack swimwear, footwear to wear when walking between the pools, and a refillable water bottle so that you can stay hydrated throughout your visit. It’s advised that you leave valuables and jewelry at home as the minerals in the water might cause some kinds of jewelry to tarnish. You can also bring your phone to the poolside so that you can take pictures of your group, but be careful not to get it wet, or forget it when you move between pools! A picnic area is available if you’d rather bring your own food and snacks, so feel free to pack a picnic basket. You should also bring towels and robes, or be prepared to hire them. Robes are especially advised in winter when the water is hot but the air outside is chilly! Towel and robe hire is included in tickets for the Spa Dreaming Center. If you’re planning to take part in any of the activities that take place outside the pools, then bring activewear for yoga, pilates, or any of the walking activities and close-toed shoes for the walks. Read more.

What are the food options at the springs?

In addition to the picnic areas, which are in the family-friendly Bath House and Bath House Amphitheater parts of the resort, there are several options for dining. At the main entrance, you’ll find the coffee hut, which sells freshly brewed beverages. In the Bath House areas, there’s a café and an Amphitheater café. There’s also a separate Spa Dreaming Center café which serves fusion foods. The cafés attempt to ensure that any products used are locally sourced and seasonal, and they try to cater to all dietary requirements. It’s best to call ahead and ask if you do have any particular needs. You can also book packages that combine breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a pizza with bathing. Read more.

Can I bring my children to the Peninsula Hot Springs?

Yes! Visitors under the age of 16 are restricted to the Bath House area only, and after 10 am the hilltop pool and bathing gully are reserved for guests over the age of 16. Never fear, there are still 14 thermal pools available for families to enjoy throughout the day. Parents should be aware that the entire resort is designed in order to offer all guests the chance to enjoy some calm and relaxation, and that the resort is a spa rather than a water park, so kids with a lot of energy might end up a little bored after they’ve finished exploring all the pools. The Northern Terrace offers special baby pools (where you can adjust the temperature of the water to the perfect level for your infant), barrel baths, and a family pool. Due to the narrow nature of the paths, strollers and pushchairs aren’t allowed in the resort. Read more.
