Peninsula Hot Springs has reopened its mineral pools for bathing

But your relaxing bathing experience won’t look exactly like it used to

For years the idyllic Mornington Peninsula has provided a refuge for Melburnians looking for a relaxing weekend away. One of the biggest drawcards for the region is the geothermal mineral springs and day spa, Peninsula Hot Springs.

After being closed for months due to state government restrictions, Peninsula Hot Springs is ready to welcome back visitors in need of a little post-iso relaxation. The venue, which offers more than 50 bathing experiences, reopened its bathhouse bathing and dining areas on Sunday, June 7. The Spa Dreaming Centre will be reopening as well, from Friday, June 12. 

To ensure everyone is safe, the Peninsula Hot Springs team has introduced a number of safety measures and hygiene precautions going forward. Change rooms will be temporarily unavailable so you have to arrive ready to bathe when you arrive. That also means you won’t be able to change after bathing, so our tip would be to bring extra towels so you don’t wet your car on the drive home. 

Significantly fewer people are allowed to bathe at any one time and you need to book in advance using the website. Contact details for each guest will be recorded for contact tracing purposes and there may also be temperate checks at reception to make sure everyone is healthy.
