Unfurtunatly it was closed when we got there. Highly dissapointing. Should be easier to find out if it's open or not. Searched online and according to websites it was supposed to be open.

Good place to relax and have a swim. Great place to have a picnic with the family or just chill out.

Crystal clear warm water to float down the river and relax. Get out walk back and do it again or exercise and swim back against the current. The water is about body temperature so not too hot. Not very many people the day we went but I think it could get busy. Not too tarted up and touristy. Has man... More

As you wander along the path looking for your own private place along the river to bask and splash...you find just the perfect spot all to yourself...jump in, perfect temperature...Then someone tells you a big snake and a water monitor were just swimming in your pool! Awesome!

We really enjoyed our visits to the hot springs. Make sure you go to the top of the springs into the large pool, really refreshing and had fun talking to all the local kids who were in the pool. They loved telling us about their town. A " must do" while in Katherine.

Nice spot, great for kids as they can float along in the water. There are a few private spots, can get very noisy as it is near to town,

Bit dirty. Condom wrapper on step and questionable people hanging around with police tracking devices on their ankles and no swimmers on, made us wonder why they were there and made us feel uncomfortable. Belongings did not feel safe unfortunately. It also smelt and had dirty debris on surface. Would have been lovely otherwise.

Mother Nature at her best. Totally unspoilt. You feel like you are back at the beginning of time! This natural sauna and mineral spa leaves you feeling refreshed and invigorated.
