Innot Hot Springs Attractions

Innot Hot Springs

In Nettle Creek, at Innot Hot Springs, hot water bubbles up through the sandy creek bed and many locals and visitors come here to sit in the shallow pools to enjoy the healing and rejuvenating properties associated with mineral hot springs. But be warned! Some sections of the creek, as the name suggests, are very hot and can reach temperatures as high as 75 degrees Celsius which could potentially burn your skin. Next to the creek is the Innot Hot Springs Leisure and Health Park. Within the park are several thermal mineral water pools of varying temperatures. The water is taken from Nettle Creek. It has a slight sulphur smell but you will get used to it. There is a small entrance fee to use the pools for a day but it is free if you are staying at the park.

Located on the Kennedy Highway between Ravenshoe and Mount Garnet.
