The caravan park is very basic but the site fee includes the spa pools. The range of heated pools is unique however signs showing the temperature of each pool would be good. The indoor pools were very nice, one in particular was very hot and I could only stay for less than a minute. The larger pool was a much better temperature when combined with the dip in the cool plunge pool.
The highlight for me was the outdoor pools, particularly the one with the fountain, a great massage could be had when you moved around under the flow. The swimming pool was great to cool off in, or the other intermediate pool. The area is surrounded by nice rock work and plants although looking a little tired, some trimming and tidying with an injection of funds to upgrade the area before it runs down anymore would be beneficial so as to maintain this little gem.

Pros: Good price, clean comfortable bed, clean room, friendly staff, good location

Cons: Very small room, old facility, few plugs for electronics, very loud toilet, bathroom clean but needed lots of work, coffee pot but no plug.
Good for an overnight stay.

The main thing here is to be ready to relax and not to expect too much. It's all very laid back. The pools are located in the the caravan and camping grounds. It's very nice, the waterfall massaging water feature a highlight and very therapeutic although there's only room For 1 or 2.
There's 3 bigger pools which range from unheated (the biggest is Swimming pool
Size) to bath temperatures, naturally heated with spring water. The water is soft and my skin felt very therapeutic.
There's a spa 'house' which we couldn't go into as it's reserved for adults. It has a very hot pool with instructions, a refreshing plunge pool and a warm relaxing pool.
That's it really. It's there for it's thermic properties and the health benefits you may have from it.
The kids (10 and 7) were ready to leave after an hour but I could have stayed for a lot longer. Also a cafe would be nice on site. The local pub does food, and is a fab place (go and do that too) but it would be nice to get a good coffee, tea, juice, and easy takeaway food on site at the pools. The shop across from the pub does coffee and pies although we didn't try those but it's worth a visit for its semi precious gems and other bits and bobs and fantastic Far North service and humour.

This place is a little Oasis in the middle of nowhere just a bit past Ravenshoe. There were about 6 pools. We were in the middle of school holidays and the kids were mainly in the first pool which wasn't cold 27 degrees. Then came the waterfall pool which massages your back beautifully. Some kids were in that one and was about 33 degrees. (Don't take my word on Exact temperature). Then came the quieter pool which had a bit more heat but not much more. Us oldies did a good soak in that one. Off we went inside which is adults only. 3 pools which had a cool pool at 27 degrees. The hot pool was 43.6 degrees and only 10 minutes was ample and the big pool was 37 degrees (a nice hot bath temp). These pools have magnesium in them and people with ailments go there to assist with their arthritis, kidney disease and liver disease. If you stay in the caravan Park you get in for nothing and its only $40 a night. A Day visitor gets in for $10 a person. Considering the cost it makes for a cheap night when you stay. Can't wait to go again .

Ok, if this review was based purely on personal enjoyment of lazing about in hot artesian water we would probably review this at a 3, but we stayed in the van park so have to combine the whole experience so sadly they lost a point from the accommodation side of things.

The positives: hotsprings are plentiful (6 pools ranging from cold to super hot), toilets, showers, change rooms all close to pools, great outdoor grassy area around pools to enjoy a sunbake, wine, BBQ etc. Yes, you can take your fave drink into the pools with you (no glass)!

We happened to be the first ones there the following morning (5am ish) and it was bliss! The skimming boxes had done there job overnight and removed the layer of human filth from the previous day & the steamy serenity as the sun came up was magic.

Camping sites very spacious, grassy & shady and you are allowed to have a campfire. Camp kitchen large. Pets welcome too!

The negatives: the ENTIRE park needs to be closed for a bloody good clean/paint/glamp.

Hotsprings areas need a pressure wash as does laundry/amenities. Only one washer working in laundry (the other looked like it had been out of order for a year or more) & when we took our bedding out of the washer it looked dirtier than when we put it in!

Shower cubicles fill completely with water (not just your shower base) so there was an inch of water through my whole stall, yuk. Glad I took thongs.

There appears to be no noise curfew whatsoever (we knew they were 24hr access) and people were in the springs with music blaring, drinking & chatting until well after midnight. Bugger.

All this for $40 per night powered ($36 un) we thought it was more like the quality of a $20-25 park.
