Artesian Baths- Mineral Springs

Updated on June 4, 2012

Hot Springs Artesian hot springs

Are you looking for hot springs or a arterian bath to relax & have a soak in on your travels ?

Do you enjoy slowly slipping into the hot tub feeling all your cares drift away as the hot water starts working on your aches & pains ?

We love the free non commercial ones best of all especially when you have them to yourselves like we did at Peron Homestead !

I used to go to the Hanmer Springs hot pools in New Zealand a lot with my parents over 20 years ago & loved visiting there every year !

Yesterday we went for a drive out along the Gibb River road to Zebedee Springs which is an amazing place to visit.

Some of the scenery can be seen in the movie "Australia with Nicole Kidman.

Unfortunatly you do have to pay $18 each to go onto El Questro land however there are many Gorges etc to explore while there so it is worth the drive.

As we travel around Australia we will look out for more artesian hot springs to enjoy and relax in.

Mataranka Falls is a favourite at the top of Australia .

The Fountain of Youth


Written by local bard – Ron O’Mullane OAM

The Fountain of Youth right here in Moree,

Is the elixir of life and this is no story,

It has been filtered through rock since time began,

And nurtured by nature to benefit man.


It will soothe aching joints, it will bathe away pain,

In the Fountain of Youth you will feel young again,

When burdened with worry and bowed down with strife,

Rejuvenate your spirits in the elixir of life.


The Fountain of Youth will balm you inside,

And the elixir of life will put spring in your stride,

In the Moree Spa Baths come lounge in the spray,

And feel it massage your troubles away.

Bitter Springs Mataranka Falls NT

When we leave Kununurra and are travelling through Mataranka we will check out the Bitter Springs Thermal pool for a nice relaxing place to have a dip and actually stretch out and do some laps, instead of the well frequented Mataranka Thermal pools.

The springs here actually branch off into a stream which you can follow down 100 metres to a bridge & ladder to climb out of then go for a walk around the Springs.
