Was a great relaxing spot very clean, although the work they are still doing on the main entrance seems to be taking forever. Still a great place to recharge.

Great little gem so close to town! Go early to beat the early afternoon crowds and you could well have a pool to yourself. Head to the spring source and float down. We were there for hours

Wonderful, relaxing, exploring. Lovely place but be careful of sharp rocks at the mini waterfalls. There's toilets and a cafe at the top. Walk down is easy. There's wheel chair access on the south side.

Just some 5 mins drive from Katherine town centre is this Hot Springs with crystal clear underground fed spring water at around 30C to 32C that wants to keep you soaking in there. The stream winds through the trees and vegetation for a short distance...More

We enjoyed much needed R&R at the free hot pools after lots of bush walking. There is a steep walk down and steps into the pools. Not to deep.

Wow! What a beautiful place. Just sad we tacked it onto the last day of our trip. You could easily spend a few days here, relaxing and walking. Magical!

Good way to cool off without freezing. They are sp ending a bit on entry paths which will make the walk a lot more user friendly, specially for the elderly.

A must do when in Katherine. Easily accessible. We didn’t find them as warm as Mataranka but definitely warmer than swimming in a pool. Unfortunately it was school holidays when we were there and so many screaming children jumping in which didn’t lend itself to...More
