Lightning Ridge Bore Baths

The water found in the Bore Baths at Lightning Ridge comes from the Great Artesian Basin and is approximately two million years old! Natural pressure sends the water to the surface through an artesian bore and it maintains a temperature of between 40 to 50 degrees celcius. The bores supplying these baths are only a few of hundreds being rehabilitated throughout the Great Artesian Basin conserving this precious natural resources for future generations.
