William Butcher - Top ten of all time.... | 2009-09-21 09:45:38
This place is magical, with the water holes surrounding the campsite and with no major roads in site…. Blue water holes is the place to be if you want to get out in complete peace and quite or even do something adventurous. This may include caving, swimming in the cold crystal clear water or the unlimited amount of hiking trails. I highly recommend blue water holes to anyone!

The road is suitable for 2WD in dry weather. This area can get crowded during school holidays. A very scenic and interesting place. Some caves are hard to find but well worth the search. I also highly recommend Blue Water Holes.

Unsealed access road suitable for 2WD vehicles. A 4WD or AWD likely to be required in wet weather when the clay topped road becomes slippery, particularly the last 5kms leading to the camping area.
Camping ground and access road is closed in Winter.
Some sites suitable for camper trailers. Definitely no caravans.
