Hidden natural swimming pool
Evans Head on the north coast of NSW is a small little seaside town which attracts tourists and beach lovers annually for its beautiful beaches and relaxed atmosphere. It is an ideal place for a family holiday or as a pit stop along the pacific motorway to relax and rest before taking on the rest of the journey, North or South. A hidden little gem that they also have, which you can find from local maps or simply asking some locals, is that they have their own natural blue and green pools.
When travelling South out of town on the main road you will come up to a work yard and Blue pool road on your left hand side. Blue pool road turns into a 4WD access only road with an exciting track for people who are into the activity of seeing how much their car can take. This track is accessible in good conditions, however if there has been a considerable downpour you should think about planning it another day cause it's no fun getting bogged!
As you pass the only house on this path on your left hand side, 50 metres or so after there is a steep incline track which leads to these serene pools. The 'pool' is enormous and such a refreshing place to be on a hot summer's day. There are a few notable jump rocks for people to dive into these pools but just remember to check there are no submerged rocks that may make you hurt or injure yourself. It didn't seem to be a problem for me, however the entrance is very slippery to get into the pools so swim with caution. These pools are an excellent natural swimming alternative to the beach and for a quiet afternoon it can be quite incredible to watch the sunset from this spot.
