Metung Springs | Melbourne City List

Bring a bit of well-being to the Gippsland region, Metung Hot Springs is the latest geothermal hot springs destination to grace the state. Led by Rachel and Adrian Bromage alongside Charles Davidson (founder of Peninsula Hot Springs), the brand new venture is a sprawling wellness space.

Metung Hot Springs was designed to be a more intimate and secluded experience compared to its peninsula counterpart. The 25-acre site features a full array of geothermal pools split between two sections; the bathing valley and hilltop escarpment both offer sensational views of the surrounding native bushland and nearby Gippsland lakes.

Speaking to Madeleine Preece, who heads up communications for Metung Springs, she described the appeal of the Gippsland region: “It’s quite an undeveloped area, you can be on the snow at Mount Hotham, surf on a beach 90 miles and then being at a pool spa all in the same day is pretty remarkable.”

There are a host of different pools on offer, all of varying depths, massage showers, a reflexology walkway, saunas as well as geothermal bath barrels positioned with views of the lagoon.

The springs were first discovered in the region in 1920 during an oil excavation, “unfortunately they did not find oil but they found geothermal water at 40 degrees”, laughs Madeleine .

The day spa offers a full range of wellness experiences and treatments that incorporate Lar’wa Wellness rituals of indigenous traditions and indigenous botanical spa creations.

There is a range of accommodation on site with even more to debut with future projects. The biggest stay to lock down now is the lagoon glamping tents, each with a king-size bed and bathroom, plus a balcony that overlooks the water with two bath barrels.

If there was no seduction, just 500 meters from the springs you will find the Country Club and premium 9-hole golf course, they’re sure to add that extra incentive for a spa getaway.

Metung Hot Springs is taking reservations and is officially open for swimming. To manage this way for more information.
