Lovely warm water with plenty of shade
Jul 2021 • Couples
Easily accessible from car park. Lovely warm water, there are steps to enable easy access into water. Be careful though the steps are made of metal and is slippery with moss. There are small ledges to just sit and chill while you soak in the water. Can get very crowded but you can easily find a shady spot to park yourself or just float around if you have a noodle. Highly enjoyable spot.

Mataranka Thermal Pool
Jul 2021 • Couples
This is a calming swim in such lovely water which is so blue! There was heaps of turtles near the tree trunks in the water so bring some goggles. This pool does get quite busy so the best time to visit is 7 am. Excellent atmosphere though with a lot of walks nearby so you can explore more. There are some ledges where you can sit or just bring a noodle!

Take a floaty
Jul 2021 • Family
Just as beautiful as all the photos you see however be warned you cannot touch the bottom hence the need for some kind of floaty!

Stunningly beautiful
Jul 2021
We lazed around floating around for couple of hours. We did bring noodles and they are a must so as you can just enjoy the float. The toilets are a bit of a walk away and I did seem to be the only one making the trek several times LOL. There can be quite a crowd and the fairly small size and length of the springs meant it did feel overcrowded. Bitter Springs just up the road is much bigger in size but the cool shade and the stunning beauty of the Cabbage Palm forest is a definite winner.

Lovely and relaxing
Jun 2021
Nice easy path walking through shady trees, metal path raised off the ground in sections, area around pools concreted with easy access in and around the pools, water lovely and warm, crystal clear, small bench along the side of the water for you to sit on and relax in the water, take a noodle or floatation device so you can just laze away, not deep, can swim over a little wall into anther section, access through the Roadhouse which has food and a shop, We of the Never Never homestead next to the parking area, plenty of parking

Nice but...
Apr 2021 • Family
It felt a bit man made which would suit a lot of people as it was super easy to get in and all nicely paced along the edges but for us it wasn’t very natural!
Super clear water and very nice just not for us.
