The Gwydir Thermal Pools Motel & Caravanpark in Moree, Australia, is the perfect spot to sit back and relax with nature. Whether you’re a traditional motel type of person or prefer to connect with Mother Earth at a camp local campsite, you can find exactly what you’re looking for here in New South Wales.
This unique location opened in 1979 and has continued to expand ever since. And in 1996, the motel and caravanpark became equipped with direct access to mineral-rich Artesian waters thanks to their onsite bore. Now, guests can enjoy a luxurious experience with perfect temperatures ranging from 28C to 39C.
But the expansion didn’t stop there. Knowing their audience and their specific wants and needs, the location designed opulent poolside cabins that allow quick access to the pools alongside a spacious and plush interior. This construction began in 2013, with the latest release in 2022.
Artesian Thermal Pools
The Gwydir Thermal Pools Motel & Caravanpark is known far and wide as the hot spot – literally – for relaxation and restoration. The motel and caravanpark offer its guests five lavish Artesian pools, allowing for plenty of space for guests to soak and swim.
Each pool is filled with hot spring water from the Great Artesian Basin. The water comes from 720 meters below, where it was trapped beneath a layer of sandstone for thousands (if not millions) of years. This allowed the water to absorb the many minerals of the Earth, including magnesium, potassium, and more.
As the water reaches the Artesian thermal pools, it provides soakers with cozy temperatures ranging from 34°C to 39°C. And thanks to the mineral-rich properties of the water, guests can experience a wide range of benefits, from increased circulation to relief from aches and pains.
If you’re looking for a more heart-pumping activity, consider hopping into the Artesian lap pool. This 25-meter lap pool is kept at a warm 29°C so that you can swim laps comfortably.
