Spring Hill

Step back in time at the Spring Hill Baths

You could be forgiven for thinking that you have stepped back in time at the Spring Hill Baths (14 Torrington St, Spring Hill).

The baths are unique to this part of the world in terms of history and facilities. Not only is the pool heated (making it more attractive in the harsh Brisbane winter!), the facilities have also retained many of its original characteristics from when it was first opened in 1886 by mayor James Hipwood.

The facility today is the only surviving covered baths in Australia and offers patrons both a nostalgic charm like no other, as well as a healthy workout.
