Discovering Tranquillity: Cunnamulla Hot Springs Named a Top Wellness Destination by National Geographic

In the heart of the Australian Outback lies a hidden gem that has captured the attention of travellers worldwide. Cunnamulla Hot Springs, recently recognised by National Geographic as one of the top destinations in their ‘Best of the World’s “Worth the Trip” Wellness’ feature, offers visitors an unparalleled experience of relaxation, cultural immersion, and natural wonder.

Nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of southwest Queensland, Cunnamulla Hot Springs stands as an inviting haven for travellers seeking a unique outback experience. Situated along the banks of the Warrego River, Cunnamulla unveils a landscape where vast plains seamlessly merge with boundless skies, offering a mesmerising escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

At Cunnamulla Hot Springs, guests can soak in one of seven hot-spring pools filled with water from the Great Artesian Basin, one of the world’s largest and deepest underground freshwater resources. These mineral-rich waters offer therapeutic benefits, promoting relaxation and rejuvenation for both body and mind.

In addition to the rejuvenating waters, visitors to Cunnamulla Hot Springs can immerse themselves in the rich cultural heritage of the region. The gardens surrounding the springs serve as a venue for frequent food and storytelling events hosted by local Indigenous groups. These gatherings provide a unique opportunity for cultural exchange and understanding between local First Nations peoples and visitors.
