The Blue Pool is a waterhole and gorge near Briagolong, just half an hour north of Sale. It’s a well-known swimming spot by locals. Enjoy a walk through nature on the Peregrine Lookout Trail, which takes about an hour return. BBQ and picnic areas are also available.

This is one of the most popular campsite in Briagolong State Forest with well established facilities and plenty of room.

The pools consist of a large waterhole that starts off shallow but quickly gets deep. The Bluff is a nice and steep five-minute climb with some amazing views over the Blue Pool area. If you fancy a bit more of a stroll, there is the Peregrine Lookout Trail, which takes about an hour return.

Between September to December, you may even be lucky enough to see some of the Peregrine falcons which nest there.
