Katherine Hot Springs, Northern Territory

Take a dip in the refreshing Katherine Hot Springs, natural thermal springs on the banks of the Katherine River, Northern Territory.

The Katherine Hot Springs are a series of clear pools with a current that runs through them.

The top pool is located at the source of the spring and can be accessed via a series of steep stairs.

The bottom pool is the largest one and is easily accessible with a wheelchair access ramp, stainless steel hand rails and steps formed out of rock.

The thermal springs have an average temperature of 25-30 degrees Celsius and are open from 7am to 7pm, daily. They are free to use. 

There is a large car park nearby as well as open grass areas for picnics, a public restroom, playground and the Pop Rocket Café.

We loved the Katherine Hot Springs. They were an absolute highlight of our visit to the Northern Territory.
