A Luxe New Thermal Spring Spa is Opening in Australia

  • All Ages

The salty secret is out! Things are heating up on Australia's east coast as a brand-new ultra-luxurious thermal spring is opening up to make the most of Australia's iconic (and all-natural) thermal pools.

Australia's Largest Selection of Thermal Pools Opens in 2022

The ultra-chic Alba Thermal Springs & Spa has over 30 thermal pools!

Australia is renowned for having some of the most fascinating thermal hotspots in the world, but unlike the rest of the world, the land down under doesn't rely on volcanic activity to produce these heated reservoirs. Australia's thermal pools - also referred to as thermal springs or hot springs - are due, in large part, to the Great Artesian Basin.

Australia's Great Artesian Basin is the deepest artesian basin in the world and covers an area of 1,700,000 square kilometres, which is roughly a quarter of the continent. Along with offering warm waters for a relaxing dip, Australia's thermal pools have numerous thermal properties thanks to the abundance of minerals, which are said to relieve muscle aches and pains, improve circulation, improve metabolism, and even improve your skin!
