Beautiful little oasis for a swim, got quite crowded when we were there with locals so we headed down to sawpit which had no one. Wouldn't camp here as it is on the side of the road.



We had a beautiful morning here on 23rd Sept with the kids playing in the water and making boats. We think one of our boys left behind their glasses though on the rocks. If anyone finds them we would love to hear from you 0411107226. Cheers
