I saw Mataranka Cabins and Camping above the Little Roper River just before Zig (1+1) and I got to Bitter Springs. Unfortunately we did not stop to take a picture. It looked like a quiet, nice place to stay but remote (~2.5 km off the Stuart Hwy on Martin Road). It would only be convenient to stay there if you were driving your own vehicle. Their website lists the following features:
•Two kilometers from the nearest restaurant
•500 meters from the Bitter Springs Thermal Pool
•Five minutes drive to the Mataranka Thermal Pool [12 km in 5 min?]
•Twenty minutes drive from the start of the walking trail to Mataranka Falls
•Twenty minutes from the old Elsey Cemetery.
They also have an excellent video (2:23 min) on their home page. Except for being a little pricey (cabins are 120 AUD and campsites 15-30 AUD) and not having a nearby restaurant, it is the kind of place I would like. I might try it next time.
It is only 500 meters away from the beautiful Bitter Springs termal pool.
