Can be too hot in the midday sun.The bores supplying these baths are only a few of hundreds being rehabilitated throughout the Great Artesian Basin conserving this precious natural resource for future generations.Free to visit and swim. Toilets available. No pets in the baths. Alcohol free zone, and no glass. No camping, caravanning or fires.
