Thermal Pool at Elsey National Park to undergo upgradation

Published on : Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Thermal Pool at Elsey National ParkThe Mataranka Thermal Pool at Elsey National Park is set to undergo an exciting upgrade after a contract for the works was awarded to a Darwin-based company.

 

 

The contract for $398,262 was awarded to Advance Civil Engineering Pty Ltd., which will support the employment of 13 staff plus two indigenous Territorians.

 

 

Elsey National Park attracts visitors all year around with its warm, crystal-clear springs for swimmers, long stretches of river and scenic walking tracks and historic sites. Three sealed roads to the Park means easy access for tourists and locals.

 

 

Mataranka Thermal Pool is located at the end of Homestead Rd which is off the Stuart Highway, 1.5 km south of Mataranka.

 

 

Minister for Parks and Wildlife Bess Price said the Mataranka Thermal Pool was one of the Territory’s most popular tourist destinations, attracting about 200,000 visitors a year.

 

 

She said the upgrades to the pool would cater for its rising popularity while still maintaining its natural assets for visitors to enjoy safely.

 

 

The works would included the extension of the retaining wall along the thermal pool bank to help reduce erosion, replacement of the existing weir, the installation of rock steps into the water and stainless steel handrails.

 

 

“Every effort will be made to minimise disturbance to visitors however there will be some access restrictions throughout the works to ensure the safety of everyone visiting the area,” Minister Price said.
