Always a great spot to go in summer, we just did a fun winter trip to this creek. If you love exploring nature and a dip in an Aussie stream this one is highly recommended. People are respectful - no litter, lots of space.

Quaint little spot for a quick dip. Crystal clear water and refreshing. Do it during the week to avoid the crowds on a hot one.
