Innot Hot Springs

Locality

Tap into the healing power of the earth at Innot Hot Springs, a small town west of Ravenshoe.

Here, natural underground water issues at a temperature of 78C (though temperatures vary). Up until 1900, the mineral water was bottled and sent to Europe – mules hauled the water over the Cardwell Range to Townsville for bottling at the Innot Cordial Factory. The spring is still known and recommended by European travellers for its healing qualities. Draw its magic power at swimming pools and soaking houses in the town. You can stay at a hotel and there’s a camping ground set close to the hot springs.

Once you have healed the body, heal the spirit with some pleasant day excursions. Once established to service tin mining, there are still riches under the ground. Visit the topaz fossicking field or take binoculars for bird watching. The remains of tin dredges have left plenty of waterholes which, in turn, attract wildlife.

You will reach Innot Hot Springs on the Savannah Way, 166 kilometres from Cairns. En route, feast the eyes on wooded monsoonal savannah grasslands.
