Rocky Hole track
Bring your bathers and take a refreshing dip in the secluded rock pools at the end of this short walk.
Accessible from the Mount Mee forest drive, this scenic track winds down to a series of delightful rock pools.
A great place to visit on a hot day, take a cooling dip and admire the rocky-outcrop surrounds and fringing eucalypt forest. Laze out on the hot rock beds and watch the canopy overhead sway in the breeze.
Nature lovers will enjoy spotting turtles, eels and crayfish in the creek, and dragonflies and kingfishers around the creek's edges.
On the short but steep return walk, stop at a small platform to admire views overlooking the creek and waterholes.
