Julia Creek Artesian Bath

The Great Artesian Basin on Julia Creek is a major drawcard for tourists to the region.

Project overview

Artesian water is millions of years old, naturally occurs at 60 degrees Celsius and has proven therapeutic properties. McKinlay Shire Council's investment at Julia Creek Caravan Park created eight artesian baths in replica rainwater tanks which are now in high demand. Visitors can recharge and connect with nature, all while supporting the local economy.

With our support, two new ‘boundary rider huts’ will create a luxurious experience for groups and include:

  • group baths
  • a deck with hammocks
  • comfortable chairs
  • relaxation space.

A network of pathways surrounding the 'boundary rider huts' will show off native flora and attract a range of bird life and wildlife.

Benefits

  • Offer unique artesian bath experience

  • Attract more visitors to Outback Queensland

  • Build new boundary rider huts
