Go for a long relaxed walk through gorgeous rain-forest and stop at some amazing lookouts over the boulders. Have a swim, cool off, visit the boulder pool and meet some great people. Musn't be missed if you are in the area.

Gorgeous setting right in the rainforest to swim, picnic and take short rainforest walks. Clear, clean water and safe swimming. You can also explore a couple of tracks - one takes you down the creek for viewing granite boulder formations; the other up into the forest. Only swim at the main area; other parts of the creek are inviting but... More

The boulders are a must do as it's a clear, clean, freshwater place to have a swim with beautiful surrounds. Be aware there are areas not to swim in ( they are signed) for your safety as the Rapids can really get flowing and have been known to take lives. There is a lovely walk with a good path so... More

It was very cool to see how the water has carved and shaped the rocks over time. We enjoyed a swim here, be careful, it's slippery!

Natural flowing waters from the mountains high above. Very refreshing on a hot Nth Qld day!! And FREE!! Hubby swam, I walked. Lots of March flies early in the year and mossies too so take your insect protection. Or just stay in the cool waters all day!!

This is a beautiful location with a good safe swimming location at the picnic area. It looks like maybe some locals and backpackers like to go further downstream into the gorge and climb over the fence and rocky outcrops and swim there. It's tempting because of its natural beauty but can be incredibly dangerous and is certainly disrespectful to the... More

I highly recommend this spot because it offers young and old a wonderful location to swim, BBQ, go for short walks, camp, etc. And it's not much a detour from the Bruce Highway. Really worth your while.

Nature at its best. It's worth stopping in this little town and have lunch, a coffee and a swim. There's BBQ areas and it's great for a day out. Water is cold and the walks are beautiful.
