The Mornington Peninsula hot springs

The hot springs mineral water rises from the earth, heated by the earth’s core and locked away for more than 10,000 years, the water here is collected from roughly 637 metres below the surface.

Each spa is drained and cleaned every night after use and refilled from the earth’s natural mineral springs ready for use the following day. 

Founded by two brothers after a trip to Japan, they became obsessed with the bathing culture that existed in the Asian countries and wondered if such a culture would take off in AUstralia, let alone be feasible.

To their delight they found potential in the Mornington Peninsula in 1979 and by 1997, Mornington Peninsula Hot springs had been created.
