We visited Katherine and Mataranka springs first, Mataranka was lovely but packed and felt very man made so we headed to Bitter Springs and had it nearly to ourselves. Much more natural and drifting around you could marvel at the spiders creativity, dragonfly’s buzzing the water and the water Lily’s. It was just beautiful. We kept getting out, walking back and repeating it! We even stayed for a picnic lunch then hopped back in for a few more rounds until we reluctantly had to make a move. It won’t be for everyone as a few kids were freaked out by it but our daughter could t get enough of the scenery and floating down the lazy river!

Incredible swimming in the springs. Enter at the swimming hole and float down stream to the foot bridge. Camping at Bitter Springs camp ground was good too.

Nice place but the floating moss, smell and big spiders and webs are a bit of a drawback. Headed to Mataranka pools instead and much better!

Gorgeous little place, stairs need a bit of a clean its quite slippery especially for younger children or elderly people nothing a scrub with a broom wouldn't fix. Other than that its a very tranquil place

What an amazing place in the Northern Territory. We spent the first part of the morning swimming at Bitter Springs which I highly recommend. It is like something you see on TV! You don’t need to travel out of Australia to enjoy something so magical and beautiful. Water is clear. There’s a nice currant which can take you downstream if you wish to float and relax. Ample parking. Not too far to walk to the springs. Toilets are near car park.
