I used to go to opal hot springs all the time as a kid and teenager with family and friends – i spent quite a few holidays in the holiday park too. I have the most wonderful memories of it! The pools have never been flash but the place had character and a really lovly family feel. Im now in my mid twenties and took my partner there for a day out over east. The place was so dirty and run down i couldnt believe it. All the vegetation was overgrown, these was stacks of wood and garbage lying about the place, the pools were very dirty and the toilets and change rooms were so bad i had to ‘hold it in’. The worst part was that the garbage bins were overflowing and there were flies everywhere. We left after about 15 minutes when we saw that our towel bag (which was sitting on the spectator seating) was covered in no less than about 20 flys. This place is a health risk, very disapointed, would not recommend.
