Lightning Ridge Bore Baths

Top choice swimming

in Lightning Ridge

The hot (41.5°C), mineral-rich water in these scenic, open-air baths is drawn from the Great Artesian Basin, 1200m below ground. Sunrise or sunset here can be magnificent, and chatting with the locals is a treat. Note: it's usually closed for cleaning from 10am to noon on weekdays, and the water's high temperatures aren't suitable for small children.
