Get ready to ring in the winter solstice in a giant thermal pool with a glass of mulled wine in one hand and a blanket of stars overhead. Alba Thermal Springs is running a limited-edition twilight program to celebrate the solstice, as well as World Bathing Day on June 22.

The Winter Warming program runs from June 22 to July 31, but it's that first night that's set to be really special. Alba is teaming up with the Astronomical Society of Victoria to host an exclusive, once-off stargazing session.

The event starts at 5pm with a Welcome to Country. Your ticket gets you access to Alba's 22 thermal pools, a glass of mulled wine or decadent hot chocolate, plus an all-new winter menu designed by the legendary Karen Martini. Martini will also be there in attendance on June 22, if you want a chance to gush and chat recipes.

At 6pm, the main event begins: a special stargazing session at the Luna Pool, hosted by the Astronomical Society of Victoria.

So what will night bathing, good food and an entire galaxy set you back? The $80 'Night Owl' package gets you entry, bathing, wine and a canape by the open fire. For the $100 'Dinner Thyme', they'll throw in a one-course meal. Bookings are essential for this one, and spots are limited.
