The Hot Springs themselves are quite nice but don't even think about about camping there. Imagine a cross between Dante's "Inferno" and "Apocalypse Now." The camping culture is absolutely broken and National Parks don't seem to be doing anything to rectify it. No envelopes were...More

It was the best hidden treasure and because you have a bit of dirt road to get there it's not over crowded. Really very nice and enjoyable

This is an awesome place to hang out. Take your bathers, and enjoy cooling off in the heat. Parking is available. Great for families and kids. Make sure that you check the crocodile signs first.

Drove here from Daly river took 11/2 hours on good sealed roads. The last few Kms are dirt road. It's sandy with a little corrugation but 2wd and caravans could get though to campground. One water crossing was only around 15cm when we drove through....More

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

Reviews were great so decided to head down there for the weekend (day trip, very much, do-able!). It was not exactly a usual dry season amidst in July but we braved ourselves anyway. Surprisingly easy to find. At least 3 turn-offs from Stuart Highway (one...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 water was just heavenly, throughly enjoyed it. Road no problem getting in. Huge campground and was packed with people camped very close to each other. We were there over a weekend. If you want peace and quiet and not be bothered by inconsiderate people,...More

This spot is about 7klm on dirt road to get there from the main road, a little water crossing but in June, very accessible by 2wd. Lovely place to just chill out, water quite hot in parts but cool and flowing in others, Definitely worth...More

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.
