  • You can go to Moree and pay to swim in the artesian baths but at Lightning Ridge it's free, the baths are well maintained and due to covid 19, there is a security guard there allowing only 20 people.....  more »
  • Public baths, free entry, change rooms (shower before entering pool). Hot water, so maybe don't take young kids. I imagine it would be nice being in the water at night looking at the stars.  more »
