During the summer months (Nov-March) guests have the option of visiting Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm instead, where you can try your hand at strawberry picking (subject to fruit availability).

**Guests who choose the strawberry picking option will not visit the Mornington Peninsula Chocolaterie.

Return to Melbourne at around 6pm, knowing you have enjoyed the best that the Mornington Peninsula has to offer.

About the Hot Springs:
These amazing natural springs are fed from an underground aquifer, located 637 metres below the ground. From here, the 50°c water rises through a bore where it settles about 10 metres under the surface. It is then pumped up to the pools at a pleasant temperature of around 37°c to 43°c. Each pool is drained and cleaned every night, but the water is filtered and returned to the water table to ensure minimal impact on the natural cycle.

The water in the hot springs is sodium chloride bicarbonate rich. The potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium ions create an almost neutral (only slightly acidic) pH level of 6.8, making the springs extremely beneficial. The trace minerals in the water absorbed through the skin, as well as the benefits of the heat, are responsible for helping with a number of medical conditions. These benefits include improved circulation, helping with hypertension and mild atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease and nervous system imbalances and much more.
