East Gippsland’s $12 Million Metung Hot Springs has officially opened.

Metung Hot Springs, Victoria’s latest wellness destination and the latest venture from the team behind Fingal’s wildly popular Peninsula Hot Springs, is now open and you can sleep amongst the springs.

A $12 million dollar project, the naturally undulating 25-acre site overlooks the magnificent Lake King, in East Gippsland and is the perfect haven to switch off and reconnect with yourself, with someone special and with nature.

Designed with intimacy and seclusion in mind and centering around the natural healing, mineral-rich geothermal waters that flow from 500m below ground, Metung Hot Springs features a full range of geothermal bathing pools. The hilltop escarpment (16+ area) and bathing ridge feature with lake view pool, architecturally designed sauna, refreshing cold plunge pool, reflexology walk, hillside pool, geothermal showers, trail pool (featuring a slow meandering ramp for guests with accessibility needs), unique bathing barrels and star gazing pool perfect for those calm summer nights. There is also a bathing valley and amphitheatre with an all-day cafe, guest amenities and a considered retail store. 

The destination also features unique safari-style glamping accommodations perched over a freshwater lagoon. These luxury suites include private geothermal bathing barrels on the balconies, ensuite bathrooms, king four-poster beds and bespoke design features inspired by and sourced from all the region has to offer. Welcome drinks, canapes, all-site bathing, a morning wellness program and gourmet breakfasts are all included in glamping accommodation bookings. 

The Wellness Activities have been curated by Metung Hot Springs Wellness Manager, Nicole Moran and include hot springs yoga (yoga in the geothermal pools), pilates, meditation, sound healing, nature therapy and more. 

On site, there’s also a tranquil day spa which welcomes guests with authentic Larn’wa Aboriginal Lore wellness rituals and native botanical spa creations to beautifully enhance guests bathing and wellness experiences through balancing massages, facials and body treatments.

If all this wasn’t grand enough, there’s also a Metung Country Club in what stands as Australia’s first hot springs golf course. Guests can dine, drink, shop and play golf at the Metung Country Club, then ride a golf cart back to their glamping suite for an evening of relaxation in the hot springs pools, sauna, geothermal showers or just meander around the site, taking in the native flora and fauna on the shores of the Gippsland Lakes. 

The original Metung Hot Springs closed in the early ’90s but its mammoth development is a joint project between the Peninsula Hot Springs team and East Gippsland tourism operators Rachel and Adrian Bromage.
