We were taking a roundabout route to Malmsbury when we spotted signage for Blackwood Mineral Springs, so we detoured.
Given our previous (and very recent) mineral spring water samplings, Nick wasn't overly keen for more taste-testing!
The three other mineral springs we've visited have all been free. There is a small entry fee to the Blackwood Mineral Springs Reserve to fund the upkeep of the site.
As we were cashless, we called in at the caravan park kiosk and arranged to pay next time. The reserve was lovely, so a return picnic is quite on the cards.
There are two springs at the reserve - one mineral and one soda. We'd been told that the mineral spring was the better one, which was true.
Erin offered Bandit a bowl of the soda spring water. Our smart dog walked away after two licks!
