Hot Springs for Point Nepean National Park

  • 1258.jpg

Point Nepean National Park Portsea is set for a $100-million facelift that could transform a historic section of the national park into a health retreat, marine education centre and luxury accommodation.  Premier Denis Napthine has revealed details of a successful bid to revamp Point Nepean Quarantine Station, which is part of a move to attract more tourists to the national park. He has said that the proposal by Point Leisure Group would take place on 4 per cent of the national park in an area that had already been significantly developed.

The Myer family Richard Shelmerdine and his wife Trine have secured the rights to redevelop Victoria’s historic Point Nepean ­Quarantine Station.  The Shelmerdines’ Point Leisure Group plans to develop an upmarket hotel, ­function centre, health retreat, hot spring facility and museum.  Their vision is for a holistic, integrated health and wellness destination that will inspire visitors to discover, unwind, relax and participate in the wonders of Point Nepean National Park.  The architecturally stunning indoor and outdoor geothermal hot spring facilities will complement the existing heritage buildings and coastal environment. 

The 17 hectare site was Victoria's quarantine ­station in 1852.

A marine education centre, a National Centre for Coasts and Climate, operated in conjunction with The University of Melbourne, is also planned amid the 50 buildings on site.  The plan also includes a coastal discovery centre that offers educational programs and accommodation for school students, a health and wellness centre, luxury and camping-style accommodation, shops, cafes and restaurants and a heritage museum.
