Like a surrealist painting, this place has the power to freeze you where you stand to marvel at it’s beauty. Tucked away in the depths of Kings Canyon in the Watarrka National Park, the lush greenery around the pool is of stark contrast to the looming orange cliffs. It’s a 6 km hiking track to access the pool - like finding a pot of gold at the end the rainbow.

How to get there: 470 km from Alice Springs via the Stuart and Lasseter Highways and is accessed from the Luritja Road. Or only 145 km via the Mereenie Loop, a four-wheel drive only track that takes you through the Tjoritja West MacDonnell National Park.
