Mataranka Thermal Pools

Swimming and relaxing at Mataranka Thermal Pools or Bitter Springs Thermal Pools is a must.

The classic Australian novel “We of the Never Never” by Jeannie Gunn (1908) tells the story of a pioneer woman’s life here, still represented by the replica homestead and cemetery.

Stop to see the diverse artworks and have a coffee at the Stockyard Gallery and Cafe.

The barramundi feeding at Territory Manor is great fun. Swim or canoe in the Roper River – fantastic!
