  • Free site with several "pools" (pools) for bathing. Watch out for thieves when it's crowded. The most interesting is to go during the week in the morning in order to enjoy the most of peace because the weekend is filled with world, and kids screaming ahah.

  • A slightly hidden gem when compared to the more promoted & popular Mataranka hot springs duo. Less crowds & a good mix of natural with man made access points. It looks like a new day use area was being built, so it might not stay hidden for long.
  • Top spot. Note: the council is doing some serious upgrading to the parking and area, dont think is closed. Park and walk past the works. Lovely spot, it's a MUST, swim and relax. No alcohol area. Great for family's with children, lovers and grey nomads alike. If you want a really top quality caravan park as well, check out the Boab caravan park 500 meters up the street, it will cost a little more, limited sites, beautiful lawns and facilities.
  • After 3200 kms of driving through nothing much at all this was a great place to relax and unwind. Surprisingly few people at sunset. Very clear, warm water with a pretty strong flow. Went in big pool and from there floated down to another pool. Lots of sheltering trees and it is free.
  • The only ok thing I would say about this place is that the water is Luke warm. Hot springs look beautiful surronded by trees. The place is under construction currently so will be a great place to visit when finished. Entrance is free.. not sure if this will change once the renovation has been completed. There's a grassy area with a pop up cafe which provide hot and cold food and drinks. Great for the family and group of friend to grab a few refreshments on a hot day.
  • It's a lovely spot and easy to get too. They are in the process of laying grass and putting it picnic tables.
