Lay back in the Spring-Fed thermal pools amid palms and tropical woodlands at Korran Bitter Springs in Elsey National Park. “Discovered by surveyors for the Overland Telegraph Line in the latter part of the nineteenth century, the Bitter Springs are located approximately two kilometres from Mataranka in the Katherine region. An ideal place to relax and unwind after a long drive, or while exploring the national park,” says the official website of the Northern Territory Government. A beautiful place to see and explore, Replas has installed 4 platforms made from Enduroplank™ decking here at Bitter Springs. This decking was installed 7 years ago and have been consistently used by the many tourists and locals visiting the springs.
The rangers have used the recycled plastic decking as the minerals in the spring corrodes most material over the years, recycled plastic decking Enduroplank™ has not been been effected by the minerals in the springs. This amazing installation and material from Enduroplank™ by Replas has led the council to upgrade the 5th platform later in 2017.
There is a short look walk available at Bitter Springs, open 24 hours and free entry. There is swimming (self-guided) with a car park and public toilet. Another incredible natural spring in Northern Territory that uses the recycled plastic in the community to keep the beauty and safety from pollution and litter. A must see if up in Darwin!
