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 👌🏼⁠

This is winter in Queensland!!
.
On the Charlotte Plains Station back in 1892, they sunk a bore 561m into the Great Artesian Basin. Now, a network of bore drains distribute the artesian water over more than 180km across the property, providing water for the animals, and for us to play in!
.
The water comes out warm and is full of minerals which are apparently full of wondrous health benefits, but really it was just a lovely place to soak!
.
And we could camp in our van, right by the water! It was heaven!

A bit of outback Aussie history.
