Love this track but the first easy part to Mermaid pools isn’t the best part. The 4km round trip through Tahmoor Gorge Track on top is pretty challenging and full of surprises. Really enjoyed this but do your research and take a lot of water. No phone reception and poor markers. Recommend hiking poles and vigilance for snakes, we saw A LOT! It’s an awesome track. Oh, and if you take your dog, you are going to have to lower him down some big rocks too big to jump down

Beautiful pool to swim in with a rope swing and rock jump

Short walk but a beautiful spot. Tricky finding your way down to the creek and pools.

Easy hike. You may find difficulty navigating through some parts of the trail. Otherwise, it was an easy hike towards a very rewarding destination. The pool itself can be difficult to get to. You have to either jump a 15 meter cliff, or climb down a wet rock face with the assistance of a few ropes. If you find difficulties with either of these, you may find the Mermaid pools not suitable for you or your group.
