Beautiful place for a dip with the natural surroundings and lots of places to explore my daughter and I had a great day. We enjoyed diving off the rock face into the deep water.

This place would be a great swimming hole in summer. We visited in winter and was beautiful despite there not having been rain in a while. Definitely worth a visit.

Really pretty walk just outside Maleny. Easy enough for people of all abilities it's pretty flat! It's quite a short walk and would be a great swimming spot in warmer weather. Must see if you're in the area.

Hi, not 100% sure but you could go on the Translink page and put in your start and end destinations and see if there is any buses. Also Kangaroo bus line is pretty big here they might have a bus that does the route.
