Bathingin the Mineral Springs

The Water:

Our Melbourne hot mineral spring water has filtered into the Dandenong Ranges aquifer over a period of many years. This water absorbs minerals from rocks and mineral deposits. Water is drawn from an underground spring on the property and is pumped to the surface from a depth of approximately 80 metres.

All mineral water pools are treated with either Bromine or chlorine in order to maintain safe bathing (this is a requirement of the Victorian Government please see:—managing-public-health-risks—2020.pdf
