This is where Victorians escape winter via thermal means. The drive down the Mornington Peninsula to the Peninsula Hot Springs retreat is basically a Melburnian pilgrimage — especially as it underwent a $13 million upgrade last year. This includes the addition of two cold plunge pools, seven new hot spring pools and an impressive outdoor Bath House Amphitheatre to the site's remote and picturesque hilltop location. This is in addition to the existing hamam, underground sauna, cave pool and the pool at the top of the hill which affords 360-degree views of the area.

You can also try out the new 'ice and fire' experience. The latter allows bathers to switch between hot and cold therapy — the hot being two new 30-person saunas, and the cold being a new (and Australian-first) ice cave and a 'deep freeze' treatment room, which will be kept at a cool 25 degrees below freezing. The idea is that, by jumping between hot and cold, you will sweat out toxins, cleanse your skin and potentially burn calories. The venue also has a new cafe, a cultural meeting space designed in collaboration with local Indigenous elders, and a multipurpose wellness centre for classes and talks.
