We didn't go for a swim but lots of others did. Very nice scenery and very relaxing. Not far to walk from the carpark and did have some shaded areas. Remember the fly repelland as well as sunscreen when visiting this site.

Firstly, if you don’t have a 4WD you have to join a expensive tour and it’s better if you can go at your own pace. *If you camp- even better- you can travel in the day before and take the 4WD track in and climb...More
