  • We combined this on a self drive day to Paronella Park. We only had a quick stop but young kids could easily spend hours in the easy access swimming hole. Nice picnic ground and toilets.  more »
  • Much quieter than Josephine Falls. The council have recently renovated the whole area and done a great job with wheelchair access all the way down to the water. There‚Äôs a large open water area safe for the little ones, amenities right at the top, and no long walk before you get there. The car park is 100m away. There is also a picnic area right there too
  • Spectacular place to visit. The main pool is safe but not really that interesting. Seeing the water flow over the boulders from the safety of the lookout was amazing.
  • Awesome swimming hole. Very cold and refreshing. The only down side is that it can become very busy in season as tourist buses go there
  • Great swimming spot to cool down. You can swim, jump off rocks, trees, chill.. big BBQ area and family friendly.
  • Amazing swim spot. Water is cold year round. No crocs here. Spacious. Toilets. No cons about this place.
