We stayed at the mataranka homestead tourist resort. It was fantastic. The weather was hot and the thermal pool was magical espically at night. Food was good and staff were friendly. We stayed the first night in a motel which was good then went to a cabin which was even better!! The cabin felt like more of a outback experience.... More

Me and my friends were on the way from Darwin to the East Coast. Others recommended us the Thermal Springs in Mataranka and we were more than happy to have a break in between. Actually we wanted to stay for 2 nights. As there was a 10% discount when we stay for three nights, we took the advantage and stayed.... More

If you don't expect too much, the cabins won't disappoint, they have everything you need for a little getaway. The staff was very kind and helpful, the nighttime acoustic guitar, large fire and Nathan the fastest whipper in history made our stay a memorable one. Thermal pool is a very short walk away through a mysterious forest and the bitter... More

Tried to order chips and gravy, fair enough it was not on the menu but got garlic bread over my head and slapped by the staff was horrible and my family will not be coming back! It was probably isolated as it's such a beautiful place but terrible staff ruined our time at such a wonderful place!

Stayed here based on a friend saying how nice the natural springs were but personally thought it smelled of muddy water and looked nothing like the promotional photos showed with green palms etc. Didn't help that some tattooed bogon clown was showing off doing bombs off the top edge making it hard to relax and enjoy it. The camp sites... More

We had a powered site. This stay was impressive. Very relaxing, quite at night but it also offered entertainment and a restaurant. The springs are lovely to swim in. The park is great for all ages. I am glad we called in. The staff were friendly.

This is a beautiful spot with lovely swimming in the relaxing springs. We had a delightful stay in the caravan park, with clean well-maintained facilities and very friendly people. Good food. The loveliest part of the stay was the entertainment every evening by resident musician Garry Booth singer/guitarist. His focus is on Australian music, with some original compositions, and great...
