Delightful spot with a wide range in water temperature suitable for all ages. There were little fish that sucked at us which both delighted and terrified the children! Some adults were drinking and smoking which detracted from the otherwise ethereal experience. No apparent facilities but...More

We are so glad we came here, the springs are amazing. You have to run through one side of the river as the water is boiling. The other stream is cool. When you find a pool where the hot meets the cold is magnificent. We...More

The hot springs are nestled in the bush 26km off the main highway and is worth the visit. No matter what temperature of water you prefer you'll find a section that suits you, from hot (41) to cool (20). Beautiful location and a peaceful environment.

Travelled the area for a few days late last year.Because the water is very shallow the water is to hot to really enjoy. Mataranka hot springs a far better to look at and swim in but a further distance from darwin.

A great day out exploring. The hot springs are very hot in some places . A great place to bring visitors, for a day trip or camping. Facilities are clean but bring all your necessities as there are no shops near by

I can see no reason why you could not take a quad bike. There is a dirt road to the springs and a dirt track to the local river camp sites. I would probably ring the owners however, they are lovely helpful people.

The last 7kms are unsealed but the road is in fair condition. There is also a part where you dip and drive through a few inches of water.
