  • Not as well known as Mataranka Hot Springs but lovely. Redevelopment looks great and provides ease of access for everyone.  more »
  • 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.

  • Perhaps it was the wrong season to visit this place. The water was murky and wasn't even warm, and the surroundings were muddy.
  • Closed till further notice. Construction works apparently removed significant trees now erosion preventative measures in progress. However cant see them completing this whilst this years wet season is still in progress.
  • Great place in Kathrine. Must visit.
  • It's in my top 20 activities in Australia during my WHV. After a camping night of heavy rain and flood we made a stop at Katherine Springs, We stayed for 3 hours leaving our stuff drying at the sun.
  • 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.
