Information

This is a principal pool at the mouth of the DQB gorge. We know this rockhole as "3 goanna's pool" and it is only 50 metres inside the DQB gorge. This is a permanent source of good water. The reason for its name becomes obvious if staring at the sheer overhanging rock wall at sunset (no other time of the day will do). There are three goanna petroglyphs engraved high on the wall that are only visible in the late afternoon.The pool is about 70 metres long and 20 wide. It is sheltered on the western side by sheer rock walls of the gorge and shaded by white trunked eucalypts. A great place to spend the sunset hour.
