  • Surprisingly cold water, but all good when you need to cool off in the desert with nice surroundings too
  • Nice area, beautiful views. The access road was very bumpy, we had a 2WD car. The flies love this place too, take repellant
  • Well maintained camp ground and day visitor facilities, several short walks and of course the Big Hole to visit or swim in.
  • Great place quite a long swim if you are going to go all the way to the end but the swim is beautiful.
  • It was great. The Big Hole was flowing. Stopped us carrying on to Ormiston Gorge as the bitumen road was flooded.
