Very peaceful
Apr 2021 • Couples
Only a couple of pools here, and when we were their we only had to share with about 5 other couples, so it was very relaxing. So nice not to have lots of kids running around also as it is age restricted.

Nice Walk & Lovely Pools
Mar 2021
We enjoyed a short walk around the terraces, there was a very impressive geyser which was throwing boiling(?) (very very hot!!!) water up into the air from 1.5km underground & causing waves... This hot water fed the hot stream & the hot pools, which we also visited - definitely recommended, they are very relaxing!

Lovely walk in nature
Oct 2020
This is a lovely peaceful walk in the bush. The track is well kept and safe. Its not really a waterfall but still impressive.

No Kids Allowed!!
Sep 2020
This was one of the most pleasant thermal pools I have ever been to/in! No child under 14 allowed so it was very peaceful. 3 pools ranging in temperatures from hot to cool to help the body heal itself. Pools look amazing in their aqua blue colours and I'm sure would be quite stunning in the late evening. If you have any muscle soreness of just need to relax, this is the place to go!

The Best Hot Pools I've Been To!
Aug 2020
These hot pools are so amazingly beautiful surrounded in natural bush and the water is really hot! The steam adds so much atmosphere and the silica makes your skin feel great.

Great venue. Relaxing waters with 3 different pools at different temperatures. Today the hottest pool was 39.5 degrees. Lovely. Changing facilities clean. There are little shelters to put your gear while u r in the pool.

Friendly welcome, thermal walk and plenty of spirited animals
Mar 2019
I wasn't feeling too well so I skipped the $10 thermal walk (feeling a bit ripped off that some seemed to pay considerably less, however) but had the friendly hosts and some cheeky chooks and ducks to keep me company while my husband did the walk. A friendly, small enterprise worth the stop or a stay.

Must take night stay
Feb 2020 • Family
We found this place while searching for night stop out of tourist track.
Campermate applucation and its reviews brought us in.

It is a must visit especially with kids.
John and Chris the hosts are very friendly and interesting.

Place itself is nature sorrounded with many animals, if you have campervan/motorhome/tent must stay at least a day.

There are extras:
* Morning animal feed, geese, lamb, pig, chickens.
* Coffee place and conversation with hosts.
* Thermal reserve.
Entrance through coffee place
Ask for manual thermometer, kids love it.
Payment 5 per adult 2 per child.
