Small camping area. Pleasant staff. Hot pool in nice setting with backdrop of trees with coloured lights. Very reasonably priced camping fee includes use of hot pool. Can visit just to use pools - shared or private - also a very acceptable price.

Great location and lovely lights in the bush around pools. Pool was really warm perfect for a cool afternoon. A lot of children playing around as its quite shallow. They have imroved the cammpervan area which looks really good.

Bliss, the water is hot, relaxing, soothing and so good for your skin and any aches or pains you have. You can choose from the public pool or private pools away from the noise and just relax. I really love going there.
