oasis called Eadine Springs.

As well as the beautiful natural pool there is a loop track around the site which is highly recommended. Easily identified by the rock border, the walk is relatively easy and well shaded but sections are not suitable for prams.

With the riparian vegetation restored, Eadine Springs is a surprising find in the mostly cleared landscape. You can visit all year round, but don't expect to see the same water volumes during low rainfall months.

a fairly new in-built BBQ and bins. There are no toilet facilities or tap water at this spot but they aren't really necessary, all of these facilities are located just a few kilometres away in Clackline.

It's a bit of shame the highway was built so close to this natural beauty, because despite the relatively dense vegetation, there is the constant hum of traffic. Nevertheless, Eadine Springs is well worth a stop if you're in the Avon Valley or tackling the Kep Track.

Eadine Springs is located 3 kms east of Clackline, 8km north-east of Bakers Hill, and 15km (10 minutes) south-west of Northam. Access is from the Great Eastern Highway, turn left onto Eadine Road, then access via a gravel drive.
