The Outback township of Cunnamulla was created by Cobb & Co. on September 3 1879, when the first coach drove through from Bourke. Today Cunnamulla is the only surviving south-west town along the original route. And its inviting mineral-laden water straight from the Great Artesian Basin has long been a drawcard for weary travellers.

To the extent that Cunnamulla is the Hot Springs Capital of Australia.

The experience will feature several geothermic free-flowing pools of various temperatures, rich with healing mineral water that is naturally heated by the artesian basin that lies beneath.

With proven health benefits, the act of bathing in geothermic waters can reduce arthritic symptoms, ease muscle tension, improve mental health, sleep, boost circulation and aid in relaxation.

Owned by the local Paroo Shire, and managed by Peninsula Hot Springs Group. As Charles Davidson from Peninsula Hot Springs says: “Cunnamulla Hot Springs in one of the remotest destinations in one of the least populated countries in the world. We want guests to connect with the outback, the local indigenous communities and most importantly, the water; the mineral rich, artesian water found at Cunnamulla.”

Guests can immerse themselves in a variety of thermal bathing and wellness experiences including seven sunning pools, a sauna and steam room, and a salt scrubs and clay mask area.

A specially designed ‘shallow pool’ allows for total immersion to gaze at the stars and is designed to capture the beauty of the clear evening skies.

Cunnamulla Hot Springs also offers the unique experience of bathing at cooler times of the day with the chance to embrace the dawn with sunrise bathing from 6 am and a sunset soak from 5-9 pm during the week.

Designed by Cox Architects, Cunnamulla Hot Springs reflects the landscape and features raw and earthy tones, mixed with natural materials such as stone and ironbark timber, set against the hardened surfaces of concrete and steel. All the while softened by the calming, thermal waters flowing through the space.

The $ 11.7 million project was jointly funded by the federal and Queensland state governments. Find Out More Here.
