We then headed down to the thermal pool. This pool is 27 degrees so not the warmest of thermal pools more like a solar heated swimming pool. The pool is filled with a natural spring which pumps out 100,000 liters of water every hour. It was just a little slimy along the concrete edges of the pool and the floor but seeing as the pool is very deep (I couldn't touch the bottom anywhere but then I am 151 centimeters tall) a sign said it can get as deep as 2.5 meters. And there are railings to get out so you don't need to touch the side. We didn't let Israel play in the wadding pool as that was filled with slime. Instead he sat in his ring and floated next to us.
We drove into the campground at dusk as we had spent the day swimming and as it was a total fire ban we couldn't even use out gas cooker, but we were allowed to use the barbecues that were provided near the pools. So we cooked there and then moved on. On the drive in we saw so many herds of brumby's, what a beautiful sight it is to spot wild horses! I never tire of spotting them, and these horses were in sensational condition, some of the best I have ever seen, and the most prolific.

We wanted to camp at blue waterholes campground but it was very busy there and we prefer it to be a little quieter. So one kilometer down the road was another camping area so we stayed there a few nights. Lovely outlook and the only facility is a composting toilet. There was so much more to do but seeing as it was our 5 year wedding anniversary during our stay we decided to just relax a little. Next time we will walk to the free cave not far from blue waterholes campground, and the gorge and waterfall a little further down the track.
