Soothe away your aches in hot mineral spa! You’ll love these bucket-list Australian outback camps to soak in artesian water…
CAMPS Ambassadors Manda and Daniel described it as: “An oasis in the middle of nowhere WA! About an hour south of Carnarvon and roughly 2 hours north of Denham, we highly recommend this one. The manager and staff [are] super lovely …and the Thermal Pools were outstanding. I can’t wait for the cafe area to open too, it will just be next level.” See more photos over here.
Julia Creek, QLD
I can personally vouch for a indulgent break in the spa houses at Julia Creek Caravan Park! East of Cloncurry, a soak with their cheese platter and a visit to the dunnart are must do experiences. You can also freedom camp outside town. A top spot!
(By the way, the Julia Creek Caravan Park Bush Dinners are kicking off in June!)
Coward Springs, SA
Who’s had a swim in this lovely hot spring? Previous CAMPS CEOs (Chief Exploring Officers!) Philip and Cathryn, stopped to visit Coward Springs Campground. What a great spot to stop for the night. Don’t forget to to visit the Museum while you are there.
Charlotte Plains, QLD
With their new private baths, decking around the bore, ablution block and a merch hut, I’m keen to get out to Charlotte Plains Station again! We loved our winter soak in the HOT bore water… A great atmosphere here, too – with a matriarch, history and huge campgrounds! Just east of Cunnamulla in Queensland.
Not just Pillaga – there is a whole circuit where you can ease your aches with in northern New South Wales. This is on our list for winter. Many you can camp beside – some for free! Pilliga Bore Baths is a budget camp with toilets, BBQ – you have a fire and bring your pets. You’ll find it out Narrabri – Wee Waa way!
