The water in Walgett Bore Baths, naturally heated to a temperature of 38-40 degrees, comes from the Great Artesian Basin and is a great spot for a long soak. The water found in bore baths such as Lightning Ridge, Burren Junction and Walgett comes from the Great Artesian Basin and is approximately two million years old.
Natural pressure sends the water to the surface through an artesian bore and it maintains a constant temperature of 38-40 degrees Celsius. The bores supplying these baths are only a few of hundreds being rehabilitated throughout the Great Artesian Basin conserving this precious natural resources for future generations.
