Up a series of steep stone steps, there is a fork in the road where walkers should turn right on the Engadin trail and then follow the signs to Kangaroo Creek.

They told them to cross the creek and follow it for about 700 meters over boulders and through beautiful bushland to find a quiet pool and waterfall.

There are also some spectacular walks, trails, waterfalls and swimming holes along Kangaroo Creek to explore.

The bloggers found another place to take a dip 100 meters upstream from the waterfall, as well as a mini swimming hole with a perfectly straight rock edge that looks like a natural infinity pool.

How to find the beautiful swimming holes of Kangaroo Creek?

  1. The walk starts at the far end of the Currawong Flat picnic area. You will almost immediately see a staircase that leads to the bush.
  2. After 95m the path flattens out, but it is quite short and then you start to climb again.
  3. At the 150m mark, you will come to a fork and take the trail on the right marked Kangaroo Creek.
  4. After walking a little less than 500 meters you will come to another intersection and continue to follow the signs to Kangaroo Creek.
  5. About 80 meters from the intersection, the track stops climbing and flattens for the next 300 meters.
  6. About 870 meters after the walk you start to descend to the creek, it is very gentle at first and then just under 300 meters later you reach a series of metal stairs that take you to the bottom of the creek.
  7. About 50 meters on your right there is a small pool which is nice but no match for what you find on the left
  8. Once you’ve checked out this first pool, head back up the stairs and follow the path to the left instead. It’s a bit overgrown but easy to follow.
  9. After 180 meters you reach the end of the obvious path, where you stand on some large rocks. There is a unique looking tree that marks the spot to look for.
  10. Do not take the path to the left which is a bush bash. Instead climb up the rocks and cross the creek here, there is a little bit of paint to make sure you are on the right track.
  11. Keep an eye out for little pink flags from here so you know you’re headed in the right direction.
  12. Once you are on the other side of the creek, you are now only 270 meters from the main pool.
  13. The rest of the path to the swimming hole is completely flat and easier than the little bit you did from the bottom of the stairs.
  14. Although there is some rubble in places, it’s still easy to follow and you’ll get to the main swimming hole very quickly, which you’ll recognize by the rather dodgy looking rope swing.
