What a great place. Take a pool noodle and you will not be disappointed. The back massage the little water fall gives you is to die for

The waters although sometimes inhabited by crocodiles, are a great place to swim. Warm and clear water with excellent facilities, this is a favourite of the locals and should not be missed.

What is a top spot and very enjoyable pales slightly when just an hour or two after you have braved the pools the radio announces a Croc has been sighted, later captured & removed. Puts a bit of a shadow on the day ! It's...More

It was a great way to spend the day. There were a lot of other people there though. If you are not a confident swimmer it is best to take some sort of flotation device as it is deep.
