Our Vision

Metung Hot Springs is a joint initiative of Peninsula Hot Springs Group and East Gippsland tourism operators, Rachel and Adrian Bromage with a vision to reignite hot springs bathing locally.

Peninsula Hot Springs is an award-winning geothermal hot springs and day spa facility based in Victoria. Founded by brothers Charles and Richard Davidson in 1997, the inspiration for the project began when Charles visited several hot springs while living in Japan in 1992 and wondered why we didn’t have hot springs in Australia. Sixteen years later, Peninsula Hot Springs is now one of Victoria’s leading tourism destinations, welcoming over 500,000 guests every year to relax and reconnect in nature.

Adrian and Rachel Bromage have a long and successful history owning and operating accommodation and tourism businesses throughout the East Gippsland region, including McMillans of Metung, 5 Knots, The Moorings, Director Boat Charters and the refurbishment and relaunch of the historic Riversleigh hotel in Bairnsdale.

With an initial $6M infrastructure build, Metung Hot Springs will have a staged launch. Creating a new wellness destination in the glorious natural setting will bolster all that Gippsland has to offer, attracting visitation year-round.

 

 

Stage one of development

 

Stage 1 – Phase A: Hot Springs and Glamping 

Metung Hot Springs is a Four Stage and multi-phase development. An initial $6M infrastructure build in stage one of the project will include five hot springs pools of varying depths, two cold plunge pools with geothermal showers, two saunas (one floating), a reflexology walk, relaxation lounges and domes, day spa facility and walking trails (plus related amenities) with panoramic sweeping views over the natural inland lagoon and magnificent Gippsland Lakes. Ten Safari tents (glamping) with private ensuites and geothermal barrel baths on the decks will provide the ultimate couples getaway.

Set in a private, natural undulating section of the site. The accommodation offering will be serviced from the existing facilities at Kings Cove Golf Club.

Stage 1 – Phase B: Metung Country Club and Hot Springs

Metung Hot Springs have an agreement with Kings Cove Club Limited, subject to shareholder approval, to develop a management model to transform the existing golf club into a community recreation centre that will be known as the Metung Country Club and Hot Springs. This will involve the construction of a hot springs area with a day spa and other thermal bathing and relaxation experiences providing the 19th hole and Australia’s first hot springs golf course.

Water from the hot-springs pools from this facility, and the main Metung Hot Springs site, will be treated, cooled in ornamental streams and water features, and then re-used for irrigation on the golf course. The re-use of the hot spring water will greatly help the golf course with its water needs.

Future stages will include the introduction of more on-site accommodation (2, 4, 10 and 11), the main reception building and bathing valley (5), a wellness centre and a marina with hot spring pools and saunas looking out over Lake King. It is also hoped that there can be a 700 meter extension to the famous Metung lakeside boardwalks that could connect Beach Road and the town to Tambo Bluff creating a 10 km long public walking and bike riding trail (8).

This project is expected to produce 25 jobs during construction and a further 35 jobs after completion of the stages. The flow on economic benefit to the region is expected to be over $300 million at maturity.    

Metung Hot Springs is positioned to be a major drawcard for the region, mirroring the impact of Peninsula Hot Springs the #1 attraction on the Mornington Peninsula, a region now the #1 day trip destination for those visiting Victoria.  A 3.5 hour drive for guests visiting from Melbourne, Metung Hot Springs will add to the existing suite of experiences on offer in the region, increasing visitors’ length of stay – good news for all in the community.
