Mataranka

The Capital of the Never Never, located on the Stuart Highway 420km south of Darwin and dotted with thermal hot springs. 30.5 million litres of thermal water (34°C) flow from Rainbow Springs every hour into the swimmable Thermal Pool at Mataranka Homestead. The popular Barramundi roams around in these waters in the Roper River, but beware the risk of a lost croc.
