Algae in the spa gave my skin an allergic reaction and broke out in spots so definitely wash yourself off in the shower after getting in there.15$ is a bit rich for all it is, 5-10 would be more reasonable.

Stayed one night in this campground. Lots of good shade during a hot period. Nobody else there. Unfortunately the museum was closed :-( would have liked to see a reduced camping fee, but so be it. The wooden-framed hotspring is a hoot but needs a clean. Otherwise certainly a camp-spot to recommend

Nice little spot to break up the drive on the track. Nice private sites and fire pits provided but make sure you have your own fire wood. Strictly no collecting here. Lovely clean amenities. Showers lit with donkey in afternoon by owner. Spring small but well worth a dip. Watch out for the mozzies. Nice location.

We arrived around lunchtime and set up camp. It is $2 if you are a day visitor and just want to go for a dip in the spring. With this you can also take a look at the lovely small museum and use the facilities. We stayed the night for $15 a head. the campsites are really neat and are set up so that you really don't see the other guests. There are lovely shade trees with lots of Corellas to keep you amused. We had a number of dips in the spring with is a really nice temperature. Not too hot or cold. Again there are lots of waterbirds to see in the wetlands behind the spring. The owner supplies a Bbq pit which we used to bake a damper in the camp oven. Great fun. He heats up the water so you can have a warm shower in the evening and the toilets are clean and beautifully decorated. We had a lovely afternoon, evening and night and I was really lucky to get some great sunset and sunrise photos. A truly magic spot.
