    There are three outdoor public mineral pools, temperatures ranging from 27deg C - 40deg C.
    Also a private bushclad mineral outdoor pool and private indoor spa baths which can be hired.
    Swimming lengths all year round, or simply soaking in the hotter mineral pools for healthy bodies.
    Entry Fee - $NZ6
    There is a resident swimming club.
    For $NZ1 you can hire a security locker if you have valuables with you.
    Adjacent to the springs, is a holiday park incorporating Cabins, Tourist cabins, flats and motels.

    Equipment: Swim suit and towel.
    If you fancy, you can take your meat and salad and have a barbeque, as there are bbq's to use there.
