Phillip Island Hot Springs comprises over 45 bathing pools, day spa, treatment rooms and facilities within a landscaped setting. It will deliver a year-round health and wellness facility to Phillip Island that will complement the current mix of tourism activities on the Island, enhance the local economy and be available for the use and enjoyment of the local community.
Located on a site on the Island with an established restaurant (now trading as The Cape Kitchen), the land provides an excellent setting for both new and established for tourism and visitor uses. The site has spectacular views of Bass Strait and Western Port and is nestled within a coastal precinct of scenic and natural beauty.
Phillip Island is recognised as a highly valued tourism asset for the State of Victoria. In addition to the Island’s natural scenic and environmental assets, it plays host to a number of events that draw international visitors. It is the home for Victoria’s strongest and most popular tourist attraction, the Penguin Parade and it hosts a range of internationally recognised motor sports events. The importance of tourism generated dollars to the local economy is strongly acknowledged in State and Local policy as well as strategic studies undertaken by Council.
With an estimated construction cost of over $10 million, Phillip Island Hot Springs represents an investment in Phillip Island that will provide substantial flow on benefits for the local, regional and broader Victorian economy. It fosters multi-season tourism that will complement the current range of accommodation and other resort facilities on the Island and in Bass Coast Shire.
While the project is still in the design phase, this image presents a complete picture and incorporates architectural sketches by Peter Crick and a landscape design which was refined and molded throughout the 3D visulalisation process.
