Cunnamulla Hot Springs Commended at AIA Regional Awards

Cunnamulla Hot Springs received a commendation in the Commercial Architecture Category for the Darling Downs/West Moreton Region on Friday night.

The jury praised the project, stating:

“The siting of Cunnamulla Hot Springs considers future community connections and boasts a strong bond to its environment. Located on the levy bank of the river, the organic shapes of the hot pools meander under gum trees, integrating them seamlessly with the low concrete walls of building pavilions that also secure resilience to future flooding from the river. Timber screens provide the pavilions with privacy, shade, and natural ventilation, while the architectural detailing and high-quality finish are commendable.”

Nestled in the heart of the Australian Outback, Cunnamulla Hot Springs is a hidden gem that has garnered international acclaim. Recently recognised by National Geographic as one of the top destinations in their ‘Best of the World’s “Worth the Trip” Wellness’ feature, this site offers visitors an unparalleled experience of relaxation, cultural immersion, and natural wonder. Situated along the banks of the Warrego River, the hot springs blend seamlessly with the surrounding landscapes, providing a mesmerizing escape from urban life.

Also entered in the awards was The Ninth Middle Ridge, which although wasn’t recognised with a win this year, remains a remarkable achievement and testament to the team’s dedication.

Cunnamulla Hot Springs will now advance to the QLD State Awards this Friday, joining other COX projects including the Cairns Convention Centre Expansion and Australian Retirement Trust Workplace.
