This is definately worth a visit. Lots of different temperatures of water that range from cold, luke warm to boiling hot. Campground very average though and no shade.

The Hot Springs themselves are quite nice but don't even think about about camping there. Imagine a cross between Dante's "Inferno" and "Apocalypse Now." The camping culture is absolutely broken and National Parks don't seem to be doing anything to rectify it. No envelopes were...More

It was the best hidden treasure and because you have a bit of dirt road to get there it's not over crowded. Really very nice and enjoyable

This is an awesome place to hang out. Take your bathers, and enjoy cooling off in the heat. Parking is available. Great for families and kids. Make sure that you check the crocodile signs first.

Drove here from Daly river took 11/2 hours on good sealed roads. The last few Kms are dirt road. It's sandy with a little corrugation but 2wd and caravans could get though to campground. One water crossing was only around 15cm when we drove through....More

Delightful spot with a wide range in water temperature suitable for all ages. There were little fish that sucked at us which both delighted and terrified the children! Some adults were drinking and smoking which detracted from the otherwise ethereal experience. No apparent facilities but...More

I can see no reason why you could not take a quad bike. There is a dirt road to the springs and a dirt track to the local river camp sites. I would probably ring the owners however, they are lovely helpful people.

The last 7kms are unsealed but the road is in fair condition. There is also a part where you dip and drive through a few inches of water.
