An amazing collection of pools (some 50m) indoor and outdoor and kids friendly. Adjacent the river where you can have a long circuit walk up one side, cross the river and return.

Definitely a more suburban feeling, it's a nice place to hold community events or relax without having to go into a forest or worry about stingers.
