  • Great part of the world. I like Katherine as a place in general so it compliments to location. Its a good size, plenty of parking and different entrance points for all ages.

  • This place is an absolute must if you are in the area. There are a few steps on the path down to the river but it's 100% worthwhile. There are a couple of locations where you can swim including where the water actually comes out of the ground. Warm but not hot but definitely relaxing. There is a pop up Cafe atop the river bank as well as toilets and some play equipment for the kids. Very popular but there was plenty of car parking.
  • PHENOMENAL. Beautiful crystal clear WARM water. Gentle current. You can float all the way from the beginning of the springs (upper swimming area) to the lower area. There is a walkway which follows the same path. The lower entrance is suitable for those with mobility aids.
  • Love this place. Peaceful and good for family. It is only open during dry season (March to September). And closed during wet season (October to February) without any management. But there is no gate for this place only sign. So you can sneak into this hot spring. Water is clear and warm. Just be ware of wild animals including crocodile.
  • Free to access. Looked inviting with the water clear blue and clean. To get there is a yomp down and easy, park up top behind Discovery Camp site. There’s a toilet but locked and looked like it has not been used for a long time. Maybe some clearing up of grass and open up the toilet again to make it a feature for the area. The hot spring though is perfect!
  • Slice of Paradise. A stream of hot springs, shallow and deep so you can find that perfect spot. There were also lots of bats above over on of the areas, that area did smell a bit cheesy but it was copeble
