  • A bit cliche to call it an oasis but it really is. Just off the highway with excellent toilets, picnic tables and well cared for grounds. Set off down the well made track and there is a lovely swimmin...  more »

  • The most stunning waterhole! Walking up to the water was like a postcard. Serene, fresh water and some shade. A few other people visited and some swam too (there is a floatation ring hung up on a post). Lots of flies which you can expect given the part of the country; just take a head net with you if it bothers you. Well worth the drive.
  • Beautiful spot! Great for a swim. You can swim all the way to the other side but make sure you're a good swimmer because the way back requires some stamina as there's a little current. We camped here the night for $5 (need the cash to put in the envelope), so that we could wake up with a morning swim! Highly recommended!
  • One of the iconic attractions around Alice Springs. A great waterhole close to town. Deep in places, so don't venture too far in if you're not a good swimmer.
  • Great water hole, cool off in the water surrounded by stunning scenery. A few shaded tables for a picnic. Very clean area ,just stunning.
  • Great place to beat the heat. Was quite private and quiet when i was there but yold it can get quite popular
