Starting from Lower Portals Carpark, Mount Barney, this return walk takes you to the swimming hole along Mount Bartney Creek via the Lower Portals Track, optionally visitin Five Peaks View Lookout along the way. An undulating straight track going through the diverse vegetation will take you to a gorgeous rock pool, sitting beautifully amidst nature. Don’t be shy, jump in and enjoy the cool waters of Mount Barney Creek and listen to the peaceful sounds of the forest to relieve some stress. You can pack some food and have a little creekside picnic after the refreshing swim if you’d like to. If lucky, you might even spot a Goanna whilst eating. Take the side trip and visit the lookout if you have time, you’ll be surprised how much you can see from there. Take plenty of water as the track is quite exposed and hot, even in winter. You may want to opt for an early morning walk if you’d like to avoid the relentless heat. This track may involve a little bit of rock hopping. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
