Soak in Peninsula Hot Springs
Below the surface of the Mornington Peninsula are natural sulphate alkaline hot springs, full of minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium ions, and low amounts of stinky sulphurous gas. Essentially, the very stuff Japanese and European bathers have been crazy about for millennia. Beyond the physically therapeutic benefits – hot springs are known to promote healthy skin, eliminate toxins, alleviate arthritis and reduce blood pressure – one finds the mental joy of peace and tranquillity. All of which are offered in abundance in Australia’s finest natural hot springs.

Note from Robin :
Shaded by trees, there are several pools in the bathhouse, including a popular cave pool, and stimulating hydrojet pool. The adjacent Spa Dreaming Centre offers various massages to soothe body and soul. Try the reflexology walk, and cool off in the wooden barrels. The vine leaf massage gets a big thumbs up.
