I am not a morning person, especially not when I'm on holidays... This bath is pretty much the first thing to ever drag me out of bed to see the sunrise! Worth it.

What an amazing experience we had here at Charlotte Plains Station in QLD 😍⁠
We were able to relax in these outdoor bore baths heated with natural artesian water that’s estimated to be up to 2 million years old!⁠
Another one to add to your list 👌🏼⁠
