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.

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!

Me in one of those tubs with my best mate in the other and a few glasses of wine is my idea of camping - who's with me?⁠⠀

This is the gorgeous Charlotte Plains Station which is a sheep station near Cunnamulla.  Visitors can camp at the onsite artesian bore.⁠⠀

Just sharing a glass of Red and a Cheese platter on the absolutely beautiful property owned by Robyn at charlotteplains.

The artesian baths are just delightful and relaxing.

This exquisite station boasts so much character and life.
If you’re travelling the outback it’s a must see destination.

When it's time to get off the blacktop and onto the dirt! Although Cunamulla was a great little town and we had a blast meeting some long lost relatives and learning the family history, we had to start heading back and couldn't go past this ripper of a campsite.

Could go for a long soak in one of the steamy artesian bore baths out at Charlotte Plains Station right now • Luckily we’ve stopped at Mum and Dad’s place for a few days and can have a shower for longer than 2 min! 😂💕🌅 🛀

we are in the middle of Queensland ~ enjoying the most incredible, natural hot mineral springs that comes out at 42 degrees Celsius. soaking at least twice a day. planning our next leg of the journey: another 800km to Innamincka. praying to god the border is open ~ I guess there’s only one way to find out 🤠
