  • What a top spot. Had a coffee at the pop up coffee shop at the springs then went for a dip in the springs. About 26 degrees, perfectly crystal clear. Loved it.  more »

  • Currently totally flooded and very very dirty with rubbish floating in it with water covering all of the walkways, would definitely not recommended swimming here. There's also a crocodile warning on the path on the way down which is less than reassuring for somewhere you're supposed to swim. Think I'll stick to my backyard paddling pool.
  • Still undergoing refurbishment so area is accessible but not great . Only a few areas that’s nice for a dip including small waterfall but very crowded. Reports of snakes under the rock. Many bats in the tree above so not sure about droppings.
  • Just see my pics and the rest is up to you. Unfortunately is was a little flooded but the family still enjoyed the quick dip along our hot journey home.
  • Although it was a little flooded it's still a beautiful place to cool off in the tropics.
  • Looked lovely. Didn't swim. Best to go up to top pool where water comes out of the spring. The bat smell is obnoxious.
