Shark Bay, Western Australia

Peron Homestead

Historic site with a small interpretive centre, walk trail and ‘hot tub’, where visitors can soak in the hot artesian waters that once supplied water to stock on the former Peron Station.

The homestead artesian bore was drilled in 1922-1923 and the water was pumped by three windmills to nine watering points for livestock. Today, visitors can enjoy a dip in the hot water, and view emus and other birds that flock to drink in the overflow from the 'hot tub'.

The artesian water is hot and soaking for extended periods can cause dehydration. Take regular breaks and drink plenty of water. The hot tub’s waters are not safe for drinking.

A nearby grassed area boasts barbecues and tables and is a great place for a picnic.
