Not an easy access but worth it. Some pools quite deep so be careful with the younger ones. Can bring a float or two. May need gloves to avoid the splinters when scrambling across fallen logs or holding on to branches on steep descend.

Taking all that effort to get there to see a small pond of stagnant water. We did not see the beauty of the spot. Facilities good but parking limited. The rock pools around mount tambourine are superior. Truly don't bother.

Amazing little spot with great photo opportunities in winter and good swimming in summer. A nice spot for a picnic.

A wonderful place to relax and have a swim (in the warmer months). There is a cafe across the road which is great it does not intrude into the peace and tranquility of the area. Young children would need to be well supervised.

A great place to stop for a picnic and swim. We stopped after visiting Cougal Falls further up the road. We had a coffee at the little coffee shop across the road. Relaxing place to spend some time at.

This was a lovely spot to chill and read a book (I went on a weekday so it was quiet). Can also recommend the cute cafe over the road (very friendly)!
