About the Mineral Springs (Heated)

Bathe in Melbourne's only Hot Mountain Mineral Springs 45 minutes from the city

Our mountain mineral spring water has filtered into the Dandenong Ranges aquifer from as high as 633 metres above sea level through faults and fractures over a period of many years. This water absorbs minerals from rocks and mineral deposits.The mountain spring water contains 1260 mg/l of naturally dissolved solids. (For a definition of filtrations hot spring see: www.eytonsearth.org)

Water is drawn from an underground spring on the property and is pumped to the surface from a depth of approximately 80 metres. The water is then heated to a comfortable bathing temperature of between 37 – 40 degrees.(Bathing above 40 degrees may cause serious health implications).  For purposes of hygiene the latest water quality management system has been installed. (Unless water in spas and pools is treated correctly bathers are exposed to germs and pathogens)
