Free entry. They are a really beautiful spot in the morning when the sun rises, especially in the winter when it's chilly there.

This was beautiful on a cool day. About 40° . Just like a warm bath. A great place to just sit back and relax. Shower first then walk right in. No cost.

After driving this was just what we needed to relax! Don't stay in too long though, read the signs on how to best utilize the baths.

Free artesian baths. Refurbished in the 60's or 70's they don't look pretty but very clean. The smaller bath is the more bearable, at 40 degrees + I found the big pool too hot. Make sure you cool of every 10 minutes or so

Great place for everyone to visit and do at least once. Its like a meeting place for people to catch up. Ive never seen this place empty. The toilets there were clean and i liked the hot showers as well.

Hot artesian spring. We took a dip to relax our muscles after the long walks at Carnarvon Gorge. These are not smelly like the sulphur based ones in New Zealand and are very clean. Loved it

Wonderful hot natural Arteaian baths. Free entry. Very clean, nature harvested at its best. Well worth an early morning or evening visit.
