If its peace and tranquility
and some fresh water pools you're after, head to the beautiful Wappa Falls just off the Nambor/Yandinda Road, and turn into Wappa Falls road.
You will drive past the Wappa Falls Observatory
before turning into Wappa Dam and Jack Harrison Park.
Jack Harrison park is one of my favourite spots set on Lake Wappa (no swimming). Kookaburra and ducks will keep you amused as you walk around the beautifully kept park.
The Dam is stunning if you get to see it just after a heavy rain, it makes a stunning set for photos.
Just a short and easy walk through the bush, will take you to Wappa Falls, where there are safe rock pools to swim in. If you are more ambitious, you can go further down the trail to the deeper pools; supervision is a must.
I do like swimming in the more gentle rock pools, though some like to sit under the waterfalls and dive into the deeper pool at the bottom of the main waterfall. It is the most beautiful setting with plenty to catch the eye of the camera.
You may see the odd turtle on the rocks if you're lucky. The scenery is stunning and the walking quite easy though paths aren't marked that clearly.
Whilst walking do look out for fungi, dragon flies, and exotic little plants that hide in the grass. As a photographer or artist you will find some stunning inspiration. Being such a popular place, you will find many people enjoying a barbecue while children can spend time playing in the playground.
The park offers toilet facilities also.
