There are five bodies of water in Mt Buffalo National Park into which hot sweaty bushwalking bodies could conceivably plunge. We will drive to the car park near each pool but there is modest walking involved to get to each pool. The longest walk is to Rollasons Falls, about 700 metres each way. That means wearing a sensible swimsuit, a shirt to protect you from the sun’s harmful rays and sensible footwear such as runners.
Through the day we will visit Ladies Bath below Eurobin Falls, then Rollasons Falls and then to Lake Catani for lunch. After lunch we will walk the 250 metres or so to Challwell Galleries, then it’s off to the Reservoir. The fifth and final pool is underneath the bridge at Crystal Book on the Gorge Walk. A sixth pool is in the creek near the Entry Booth. This is not as interesting as the other pools but if the group wants to swim there as well we will. I’m aiming to be in the first pool by 9: 30 or 10.00 AM.. BYO swimming costume, towel, lunch and runners or similar footwear for the various short walks to the pools.
