Hastings Thermal Springs Pool re-opens after upgrade


The Hastings Thermal Springs Pool is open again following a recent upgrade.

The work to the pool is part of a $122,000 allocation from the Economic and Social Infrastructure Fund for redevelopment work at the Hastings cave and thermal springs pool complex.

The work is part of a continuing effort to provide all tourists and local visitors with the highest quality facilities and service.

The upgrade to the thermal springs pool included a new fibreglass lining that will be much longer wearing as well as requiring less regular maintenance.

It will also see the pool take on a more natural shape and feel.

The pool upgrade follows on from a number of improvements at Hastings over recent years, including a new visitor centre, re-wiring and re-lighting of Newdegate Cave, replacement of boardwalks and landscaping within the thermal springs area.

The Minister for Tourism, Parks and Heritage, Ken Bacon, inspected the new works today.
