Family fun day at Hastings Thermal Springs


Hastings Cave is throwing open the doors to the thermal springs pool for a family fun day on Saturday, 28 November.

Hastings Cave business enterprise manager Beth Russell said the family fun day is being held to encourage the local southern Tasmanian community to experience Hastings Cave and other nearby parks during the coming summer.

"The far south of Tasmania has a number of beautiful parks and reserves, including Hastings, Hartz Mountains and the Southwest national parks," Mrs Russell said.

"Hastings provides a great family outing, with activities for all ages and the thermal pool is a centerpiece of the reserve's attractions."

There will be a number of free activities on the day, including free entry to the thermal springs, free interpretation walks, hand painting, balloons and giveaways, all based at the thermal springs pool.

"We'll also showcase locally produced crafts which make ideal Christmas gifts," Mrs Russell said.

"Finally, we're encouraging the community to provide any comments or suggestions about Hastings on comment cards available."

Activities run from 10am to 4pm.Cave tours will be available with the usual fees to apply.
