The Savannah Way’s newest tourist attraction – Talaroo Hot Springs – combines the culture and hospitality of Ewamian people with one of North West Queensland’s most unique and globally significant geological wonders.
Talaroo’s recently opened outback caravan park and campground offers 16 powered and 14 unpowered sites around purpose-built amenities and a camp kitchen. It is set just 200 metres from the beautiful Einasleigh River and a stone’s throw from the spectacular Hot Springs.
Talaroo is a magical landscape alive with culture, nature, history and breathtaking beauty and guests are encouraged to make the most of “Talaroo time” by connecting with Ewamian traditional owners. You can join the exclusive guided tours or experience the healing waters of the hot springs or private soaking pools. Visitors enjoy a walk to the Einasleigh River and experiencing a yarning circle.
Ewamian Elder and cultural advisor for Talaroo’s tours and experiences, Jimmy “JR” Richards, is passionate about sharing Ewamian culture and knowledge with visitors and has a unique connection to his country. In his youth, JR worked as a stockman at Talaroo Station. He went on to become the first indigenous tour guide at the Undara Experience before developing some of Queensland’s most iconic indigenous ranger programs, including the program at Talaroo. His wealth of knowledge and deep cultural insights have formed the heart of the Savannah Guides training program and he is inspiring the team of new guides to share Talaroo’s great stories with visitors.
