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.

7 tips for visiting the Peninsula Hot Springs

Make sure to take photosThe 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.

Try to catch the right weatherCheck 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!
Plan carefully to be able to relax completelyThe 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.
Book private packagesIf 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.
Pick up a freedom wristbandRather 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.
Bring the right things with youMake 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. 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.
Don’t bring valuablesIt’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!

What's behind Peninsula Hot Springs

Peninsula Hot Springs is the brainchild of brothers Charles and Richard Davidson. While Charles was living in Japan he discovered the Japanese tradition of onsen bathing - hot spring bathing. On his return to Australia, he and his brother discovered hot geothermal waters on the Mornington Peninsula. After boring over 2980 feet (637 meters), they struck an aquifer with water naturally heated to 129 degrees Fahrenheit (54 degrees Celsius). In 1997 they founded the springs.

A resort that invites to dream

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 70 bathing attractions 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.

The Hot Springs have more to offer

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.

Regional delight experience

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.

Experience the Hot Springs with children

When visiting with children, parents should keep in mind that the entire resort is designed in order to offer all guests the chance to enjoy some calm and relaxation, 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. Visitors under the age of 16 are restricted to the Bath House area only, after 10 am the hilltop pool and bathing gully are reserved for guests over the age of 16.

Free additional activities

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.
