Well worth a visit. Accessible in a 2WD with care as access road is not too long but better with a 4WD. Very accessible as relatively short hike from the car park. We preferred this pool to Jim Jim as much sunnier, prettier spot and...More

Fantastic falls. Really enjoyed our swim. Well worth a visit and a hike to the top where there’s more pools.

After a 10 km bumpy dirt road to get in, the car park is shaded and inviting. After a walk through a shaded tropical forest, ( where croc warnings abound) you walk along a slightly more rocky path before you get to the pool. The...More

FANTASTIC!! 10km bumpy dirty road to get there and then about a 600m walk across some pretty rocky areas, BUT when you get there you are greeted with a fantastic almost circular gorge, waterfall and pristine crystal clear water. A perfect place for a swim....More
