description

Group of boulders next to the deep hole. The island is divided by a stagnate pool, dry creek bed on one side and the Macdonald river the other.

access issues

Is via private property, please shut the gate if you access via the north end. Owner has given permission to climb the boulders in his paddock off the the river and access the river from the watsons creek road side. Owner on the opposite side (east) of the river prefers that no one access his property. There is a fence on that side, all boulders along the river are public access and available to anyone.

inherited from The Deep Hole

approach

From the south side of the river, follow the rough track till the dry creek bed and cross before the stagnate pool. From the north cross the fence and follow the river south, once you see a rock that often has a ladder on it to jump into the deep hole you are there.

ethic

A lot of people access this area to swim, please take all rubbish with you. Unfortunately has a history of people doing the wrong thing and could leed to a total lock out.
