The road is a little bit complicated but it is worth it! You will arrive in a little park, walk for five minutes on an easy track and then you will see these two hot pools. You only have to go in (water very hot) and relax, looking at the landscape.

The surroundings and hot pools are amazing, but just a word of warning for anyone with young children making the (gravelly) hike. Lots of steep drop offs and tricky tracks make it a bit of a 'watching your kids like a hawk' instead of 'enjoying the awesomeness' type of place.
