Local tourism operators Adrian and Rachel Bromage have collaborated with the award-winning Peninsula Hot Springs Group to bring back hot springs bathing to Metung in East Gippsland.
Much loved by locals, the original springs at Metung were Victoria’s first hot springs. A popular spot for locals to catch up and relax after a day out on the Gippsland Lakes, the hot springs hold a special place in the hearts of many.
Rachel and Adrian grew up visiting the original Metung springs and are passionate about reigniting the hot springs experience for Gippsland. Peninsula Hot Springs is a family favourite for the Bromage family, creating a natural step for Rachel and Adrian to begin talks with Founder and Creative Director of Peninsula Hot Springs, Charles Davidson to share their dream and gain insights into the industry and operations of the business they admire.
As a passionate ambassador for the entire industry both locally and internationally, Charles supported Rachel and Adrian with his extensive knowledge of hot springs from his travels to over 50 countries. As the Peninsula Hot Springs Group continued to grow and evolve, a natural partnership emerged to get this project off the ground. Joining forces in 2018, land was purchased in the Kings Cove estate and the journey to bring hot springs back to the Metung had begun.
Combining the experience and expertise from the team behind Australia’s most visited hot spring (Peninsula Hot Springs welcomes over 500,000 guests per year), with the experience of local tourism operators who are passionate about the region, Metung Hot Springs is an exciting new venture scheduled for opening in mid 2022.
The site for Metung Hot Springs has been chosen for its natural appeal, breathtaking views and proximity to the neighbouring Kings Cove Golf Club, with an ambition to integrate the golf course into the master plan, creating Australia’s first hot springs golf club.
The project has garnered support from both state and local governments and is expected to generate 25 jobs during construction, extending to 35 when operational.
Peninsula Hot Springs Group is spearheaded by founder and Creative Director Charles Davidson in partnership with co-owner Bharat Mitra (chairman and owner of Organic India). Both are passionate about wellness and are committed to expanding the industry, sharing the healing benefits of geothermal water and reconnection through bathing practices with the community.
