Information

This spectacular gorge is well worth the visit if you are prepared for a bit of effort. Access is very tricky - it is best to leave your vehicle at a point where you have space to turn around and then walk up the track that progressively becomes rockier. You are now walking up an overgrown creek bed which spills out from the main rock pool. The only way to proceed to the main rock pool is to climb the rocky hill on the left - take this to the very top and continue walking in the direction of the creek until you can see where the creek meets the main waterhole. You can then pick your way down the rocks on the other side where you can easily take a swim in the beautiful waterhole or just sit and enjoy. Depending on water levels you should be able to cross over at the back of the main pool and then follow the rocks down to the lower levels. This is a beautiful area but very tricky to get to and is not mentioned in the Newman Tourist Information Centre handout for the Three Pools - Eagle Rock - Kalgan Creek 4WD circuit for possibly this reason.
