Easy walk through some pretty bush. We decided not to swim as we weren’t sure how to get back out of the water, nice spot to lounge around on the rocks and relax.

Easy to Medium trail, look out for the wildlife, cane across green snake crossing the path, a few frill neck lizards and insects. Although, thoroughly enjoyed the hike, especially the view of the pool and small waterfall at the end. Easy to find track also.

Very easy walk to the pool. Beautiful scenery however getting popularity means some ppl don't do the right thing. Rubbish everywhere in the cave rock and vandalizing the signage.

Not a bad walk which is nice and easy. There is signage stating only women and children can swim in the water there.

I loved this trail, I was baby wearing and there were a few spots I was needed hubbys help, but overall it’s a good path, easy to walk and the sounds and the end lookout/pools are absolutely beautiful!

First to Review

This trail is rated medium difficulty by the Dharawal National Park. Good signage and clear path. There are a few sneaky little places you can hop off the trail to get some awesome pics. Harder on the way back as you are going uphill. Would definitely do it again.
