Hi

In a few weeks we are heading up to western QLD, Thargomindah, Longreach, Hughenden, Cobbold Gorge etc. I notice several properties that host camping have hot artesian pools. Hard to know if these are a dam where the overflow goes or a bit more accessible. Can any people who have stayed on properties or camped at these places with artesian pools provide comments on which ones to try out, or which ones to avoid.
thanks

Hi o.e. try Innot Hot Springs 100km NE of the Undara Lave Tubes and Ilfracombe near Longreach.Camp at Innot and you can use the spa pools for free. You can then live up to your sensuous and luxurious expectations... W

When we were there last year, innot hot springs was only ankle deep water. I wasn't very impressed.
I've heard lightning ridge is good too.

There is a book you can buy listing all the artesian springs/pools in the country with photo's and comments. I got my copy from the Gwdir Caravan Park in Morree NSW about $15 but they would be available in many places

Bit further south. The fee artesion pool in Lightning Ridge is well worth stopping by.

oops, typo. Read "free artesian pool" -The baths are open 24 hours a day every day and are free to enter. Absolutely great and worth going to Lightning Ridge for!

G'day,

if you're going to be near Thargo it would pay to travel across to Eulo and stop at the Palm Grove Date Farm and Winery.

They have old baths that are private, there is a wood fire in each room and at night you can lie back and look at the stars, sipping on date wine or liqueur.

My wife swears by it.
Check out the Sticky Date Liqueur, it's really moreish and they have heaps of great products.

The old shed full of "stuff"if worth checking out plus Eulo has the Eulo Queen Hotel to drink, eat and camp out the back of.

Hoo roo,
Steve
