Spring Water Melbourne - Benita French
A free source of Natural Spring Water in Melbourne.
The first lesson in my Free Healing Course talks about the healing power of spring water in contrast to what is coming out of your taps.
When the Water Lesson first went out to my existing client list, I had many people asking for directions to my secret source of free natural spring water in Melbourne.
While lesson #1 talks about additional locations, most requests have been for the trickier to find, Kinglake Springs.
Directions To Kinglake West Springs
- Drive to Eltham, N.E. Melbourne
You should know where this is… Benita’s Healing Practise is in the Eltham CBD
- Drive out from Eltham to Saint Andrews
Via Research, Kangaroo ground and Panton hill
- Drive from St Andrews to Kinglake
Via the windy road
- Turn left as you are coming into Kinglake
The roundabout before the main township
- Drive past Pheasant Creek to Kinglake West
You will reach a T-intersection
- Turn right at the T-intersection
Towards Flowerdale and Yea
- Keep driving until you have forest on both sides
Mostly you will have forest on the left
- You will start to wind down hill to STONY CREEK
Stony Creek is a quarter of the way towards Flowerdale
- SLOW DOWN when you see the green “REMAR AUSTRALIA” sign post
This is a private track and Rehabilitation camp.
- Pull into the next car park on the left (the one with huge boulders)
If this is your first visit… Take this 1st Entrance before the ‘Stony Creek’ sign post.
On further visits you can navigate through the trickier 2nd entrance, after the ‘Stony Creek’ sign.
- Pull in just as the left Side rail ends
Gravel entrance and there should be NO sign of a side rail, ahead of this entrance
- Park and Follow the walking trail down to the water.
A beautiful, crystal clear and stony creek bed with a steep cliff on its other side.
- Cross the creek via the wonky makeshift bridge.
Sometimes good, sometimes not. Support your balance with a stick or just walk through the cold water, barefoot!!!
- Fill your containers and cart them back up to your car
Across the water there are Two outlet pipes flowing continuously from the steep side of the creek.
CONTAINERS: Buy a few 10 liter containers of Spring water from a Melbourne Safeway, well before you go… DRINK ONLY SPRING WATER (especially if your going to boil water) and save these containers for your upcoming trip to Kinglake. These specific, empty containers, have two handles and are easier to carry than most.
TAKE HELPERS: Make sure you take a friend, or strong hubby, or child labour to share the work load of carting water back to your car and be sure the distribute the water evenly through your back seat and boot. You DO NOT want all the weight on one side or behind the back wheels of your vehicle.
WARNING: Be careful with the second entrance, but do take some time for a walk to uncover this better and closer entrance.
BETTER PARKING: Instead of crossing the wonky bridge, turn right and walk the short path to a second crossing. You may even see someone parked there, because it cuts the carting effort down considerably. Once you cross the creek here. Keep walking back out and towards the main road through some pretty hidden and rough driving tracks. It is a bit of a rabbit warren and NOT RECOMMENDED in winter or wet weather. Take note of the best route to drive back in to this area. Eventually, your walk will bring you out to what is a second Car Park / clearing. Next time, if both the weather and track are dry. You can take this second entrance and park right on the creek. You can even go for a swim further back where the creek bend and deepens slightly. This whole area is great for kids and picnics. During summer, you will often see kids playing in the clear water and building dams with the abundance of pebbles and rocks. Water is always freezing. ^_^
