Peninsula Hot Springs, Onsen in Victoria

Peninsula Hot Springs, Onsen in Victoria

If you are a big fan of onsen (hot spring in Japanese) and you are in the beautiful state of Victoria, you should continue to read this. When I was schedule to visit this place, I was in shocked. Seriously, there is a onsen in Victoria? It is the least place to expect and not to mention in Mornington Peninsula. The name is Peninsula Hot Springs, a very innovative hot spring and the only hot spring I stumbled upon in Australia.

So why hot spring in Mornington Peninsula?

Apparently, natural hot mineral springs have been found deep underground on Melbourne’s Mornington Peninsula. The 50ºC waters rich in healing minerals are now flowing to the surface and into the thermal pools at the new Peninsula Hot Springs.

Like the historic and famous spa centres of Europe, the Americas and New Zealand, the natural hot springs on the Mornington Peninsula bring the blissful and healthy pleasure of “taking the waters” to the people.

There are two sections in Peninsula Hot Springs, public pools and private pools. The place is designed and renovated to its best. Due to strict photography rules in Australia, I can only snap certain places in Peninsula Hot Springs with the permission of the owner.

As recommended, I booked the private pool for 45 minutes and it was amazing. I had the private hot spring by my own and I totally enjoyed it.

I had this small fenced area by myself with the private pool. The best is to do a multiple dips and remember to re-hydrate every time you go up.

This is really an outstanding place. I spoke to the manager and he told me that he did research on most hot springs in Asia including Malaysia. Peninsula Hot Spring is built with passion and love.
