This once pretty creek bank and swimming area has been ruined by idiots who think it's okay to drive through the creek to the small section of river rocks on the other side, a walk of only 5 metres through shallows! Please know that it's illegal to drive through creeks which are not designated roads, it pollutes the water and in this spot it has seriously degraded the clay banks creating erosion that has caused several large native trees to fall into the hole. Where's the respect?



Magic pools swimming area is about 100m down Dingo creek Rd. Accessible by any small car. Going further down the road might need 4x4. No tables, no bins, just a natural swimming hole in the forest. Water is bloody cold all year round, but is a beautiful setting and water is crystal clear. Dogs and kids love it. BYO chairs and please pick up your rubbish.
