Visited here three times now and it's always great fun. Lathering yourself, and usually others, in stinking mud! Does it have any medicinal or other benefits? Who knows but lots of people seem to think it does. I usually drive with my children and their friends who have a good laughs. Free of charge!

A whole new experience and I felt invigorated after. It does get very messy as you would expect and a little smelly and hot once on but well worth the time and effort.

We had a great day out here. The mud has a very noxious smell, but I suppose that's all the salts and chemicals that are supposed to be good for you. If you don't like the mud it's a very nice walk looking at all the birds. Lots of places to dine at every level of culinary skill you require.... More

What a hoot ...... Covering my wife in mud what a laugh. This is a must visit 'free' and just a great laugh. Walking about with everyone looking at you as if you are mad...... The reviews previous are spot on. Take spare clothes and be prepared to get mucky. Walk about for an hour let it dry then wash... More

We loved visiting the mud baths. Went with no expectations but came home with silky smooth skin. There's a beach opposite to have a bath in! Looooooved it. Take a bucket to get the mud out and apply thinly.

If you get here at 9.30ish you can park on the road and stroll to the jetty to apply the thick smelly mud. Sounds disgusting but it's really enjoyable as you let it bake dry in the sun - back in to wash it off ( take a sponge ) and you feel cleansed and relaxed . It is a... More

The mud is fun to apply and dry out on the pier. Make sure you wade out about 15m from the pier to the deep mud. Apply it thinly and let to dry.
