Rock Pools


Natural Rock Pool Swimming 

We have a multitude of natural rock pools within Cedar Creek.
 Clear mountain waters cascade and tumble over well-honed boulders in and out of the pools,
 They're perfect for bathing and relaxing in on a hot Summer’s day.
 The pools are dotted all up the creek and are easily accessible by rock hopping.
Children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times and as the pools are natural, safe foot wear, similar to crocs, MUST be worn.


Remember: Your Safety is our Concern, but it is your Responsibility

Come Swim With Us

We've cleared and opened up two medium-sized pools in close proximity to the body of the property, right next to the Thunderbird Mine Rock Shop. It's essential that bathers wear sensible walking shoes when trekking along Cedar Creek, which is bordered by rainforest. Reef shoes are recommended when in the rock pools for the safety and comfort of our guests.
All rubbish must be taken away as there are no rubbish receptacles.


Entry Requirements
Please understand this is a potentially-dangerous activity and all precautions must be taken to ensure a safe and sensible bush walking and swimming adventure. Don't let that put you off to this fun and exciting activity! Rock Pool swimming is the perfect summer school holiday activity. Alcohol and smoking are not permitted, and the rock pools are only available to Thunderbird Park’s campers and guests staying at Cedar Creek Lodges.
