Bitter Springs is more ‘natural’ than the pool at the caravan park.  Jump in, float down (about 150 metres), climb out, and do it again. Flotation noodles are good but many people just used thongs on their hands as paddles.

We returned to the caravan park for a session in the hot springs pool there.

Mataranka would have to be one of the most naturally decadent spots in Australia’s Outback.  Unexpectedly so. How to while away a couple of idyllic, lazy days. Like so many wonderful, popular destinations, it is being loved to death by thousands of fellow tourists.  What to do? – see it now!

We passed the evening watching a DVD with our ‘power independent’ neighbour.
