What a stunning waterhole. I would highly recommend this over Jim Jim mainly due to the quality of the swim and the distances involved. Jim Jim is freezing and dark and the hike in is long and the boulders, large. Also, it's 50kms of very...More

The short hike (2-3km) up to the waterfall and back to the parking lot was open in the wet season. The falls were flowing so much, we got a couple of great photos. We also walked down to the base of the falls and over...More

Having missed a chance to swim at the pools in Litchfield (a shame) we decided to go to Maguk. While we are not afraid of a longish walk, we were unprepared for the rough, uneven rocky, boulder strewn path to this pool. One of our...More

Enjoyable and adventurous walk to the gorge. Over rocks, sand and uneven terrain so good shoes are very welcome. Once at the gorge it is as beautiful as the photos and water is lovely. Didn't bring a snorkel but would have been nice to have....More

After a 10 km corrugated gravel road park the car and walk to the gorge. The initial track is easy but the rocks you clamber over just before the gorge require sure footedness. Swim in the gorge and look up at the waterfall that runs...More

This place was a hidden gem recommended by the ranger at garammar camp ground. It was the best swimming hole we had visited where we did not have to trek for over an hour. Nice place.

A good twenty - twenty five minute walk from the car park makes it all the more worthwhile, as does the climb to the top of the falls - relatively easy - which, apart from the views affords you the pick of half a dozen...More

Fabulous scenery as we scrambled our way to the Maguk Gorge. Only disappointment was the pristine beauty was marred by someone feeling the need for a cigarette. You walk so far for the joy of nature and then can't enjoy the fresh air . Come...More

FANTASTIC!! 10km bumpy dirty road to get there and then about a 600m walk across some pretty rocky areas, BUT when you get there you are greeted with a fantastic almost circular gorge, waterfall and pristine crystal clear water. A perfect place for a swim....More
