Well worth the drive to Littel Crystal Creek. The road that was built by people in the depression is no mean feat and they deserve great thanks for giving us access to such a beautiful place.

A great place to spend a few hours cooling off in the heat of a Townsville summer! The water is always cool & clear. Nice spot for a picnic & a swim, if you don't mind a bit of a winding drive.

Unfortunately no; it’s located in the Paluma National Park. No domestic animals (unless you have a service dog) are allowed in national parks.
