Peninsula Hot Springs is the post-lockdown retreat we all deserve

Words by Eva Marchingo

When it’s time to replenish your emotional and physical wellbeing, Peninsula Hot Springs is the most effective place to go.

The natural thermal mineral springs are less than a 90-minute drive south of Melbourne, and have drawn on cultures from around the world to create a harmonious retreat.

The springs are estimated to be over ten thousand years old, with water rising 637 metres from below the earth’s surface and heated naturally by the earth’s core. The springs are high in magnesium, boron, potassium, and sodium, all naturally occurring in the geothermal waters.

A Turkish steam bath will exfoliate, cleanse and refresh your skin, or the daring cold plunge will increase your metabolism and improve lymphatic drainage. And these are just two of more than 30 globally-inspired bathing experiences, all with unique health benefits. And if you’re looking for something else to compliment your bathing experience, Peninsula Hot Springs offers nourishing food, healing massages and calming yoga sessions as well.

Since it’s inception in 1997, the Peninsula Hot Springs has evolved into a world-leader in the spa, wellness and hot spring industries. Unfortunately, you’ll have to put your geothermal bathing dreams on hold while the Peninsula Hot Springs are temporarily closed. All the more motivation for Melburnians to behave so it’s safe to reopen sooner.
