We visited the spa pools in August - not the best time. There was hardly any water running through and it wasn’t as blue and transparent as we thought it would be. We did get told beforehand that there wouldn’t be much water as there...More

Well worth the circuit trip from Cardwell to Kennedy, enjoy the scenery, spectacular pines, roads sealed and well signed.

Absolutely magnificent swimming lagoon. Flowing mountain water fed by underground mineral springs. The colour blue is deeper in winter months. It is easily accessible and 100%worth going to see. So unusual. I fell in love with this glorious place.
