Jeanies Pool is not officially named on any topographic map, but is the informal name for this idyllic pool near Rocky Ponds (in Brisbane Water National Park). So, Jeanies Pool Waterfall seems the appropriate name for the plunge waterfall formed by Tank Creek dropping over a sandstone ledge into the pool.
A path leads to the top of the waterfall, where there is large flat area around the creek, overlooking Jeanies Pool.
A bit further along Tank Creek, another path leads to the pool and the base of the waterfall.
Although it’s not a very deep pool, it’s deep enough for a swim – and the water is very clean. The pool doesn’t get much sun, so you’ll want to pick a warm day!
Getting to Jeanies Pool
It’s a decent bushwalk to reach Jeanies Pool, which is at the southern end of Brisbane Water National Park. You can access the pool and falls from the north or the south:
- from Woy Woy Road (via Tunnel Trail and Rocky Ponds Trail) – approx 16km return. (This route is described in Rocky Ponds Trail to The Icicles.)
- from Little Wobby Beach (ferry access) – approx 10km return
- or you can walk from Little Wobby Wharf to Woy Woy station, which is about 22km one-way.
