Mataranka Hot springs are a set of natural thermal pools in the Elsey National Park, about 420 kilometres South East of Darwin, Australia. In the main thermal pool, Rainbow Springs, water flows at a constant 34ºC and is beautiful and clear.
The Roper River starts near Mataranka, and flows all the way to the Gulf of Carpentaria. In the wet season (November to April) the river floods and the usually calm flow becomes a raging current. The best season to enjoy the Elsey National Park and Mataranka springs is from May to September.
