After closing down in 1996, the former Metung Hot Pools are coming back to life. Get ready for Metung Hot Springs, a new wellness destination brought to you by the team behind the iconic Peninsula Hot Springs, as well as East Gippsland tourism operators Rachel and Adrian Bromage. Bathe in the healing waters, surrounded by native bushland, with sweeping views of the Gippsland Lakes, when Metung Hot Springs opens in mid-2022.
Metung Hot Springs
This ambitious project will revitalise the historic site over four stages. The first phase of stage one is expected to be complete in late autumn. Soak in seven hot springs pools of varying depths. Then, cool off in two cool plunge pools with geothermal showers. There will also be a reflexology walk, relaxation lounges and domes, a day spa facility, and walking trails with views of the natural inland lagoon and Gippsland Lakes.
Glamping is also on the table, with ten Safari tents, private ensuites and geothermal barrel baths. Accommodation will be serviced from existing facilities at the nearby Kings Cove Golf Club, but more accommodation on-site is planned for the future.
The geothermal waters are located 500 metres beneath the earth’s surface, and are 45 degrees Celsius at the source. As we move closer to the winter months, these mineral-infused waters will be the perfect way to beat the chilly weather.
The team behind Peninsula Hot Springs are helping to revitalise the area, but the Metung Hot Springs will have its own unique identity. These springs will harmonise with its natural surroundings, and include sweeping views of the beautiful King Lake.
