Eaton Family's Aussie Adventure
There are quite a lot of hot springs in NT and this one was particularly nice - it wasn't the best known and therefore wasn't nearly so crowded as the Mataranka one. Also the pool was natural, whereas Mataranka has been concreted. We had heard from another family at Yulara that all their kids got a dysentry type sickness after swimming at Mataranka and that was enough to put Cath off. However Bitter Springs was lovely - the water was about 32 - not really that hot, but just nice. We camped that night right by Katherine Hot Springs and had another swim there.
