Floating Sauna Lake Derby is Australia’s only floating wood-fired sauna.
Located in Tasmania’s world-class mountain biking town of Derby, the sauna gives visitors the opportunity to re-connect with nature, through the enjoyment of a traditional Finnish wood-fired sauna and cold plunge directly off the pontoon into the freshwater of Bresies Hole (otherwise known as Lake Derby).
Australians are quickly discovering what Scandanavians have known for literally hundreds of years. Mountain bikers love the idea of being able to recover more quickly from a day’s ride, to be able to ride again tomorrow. It does help that the sauna has been architecturally designed and sits on one of the most naturally beautiful lakes in the area.
The sauna seats up to ten people and is open to the public as well as bookings for private sessions.
