All the Best Swimming Spots in the Collie River Valley

Collie is home to some truly unique swimming spots, including several spectacular river pools, the amazing Blue Lakes and the famous Honeymoon Pool.

Stockton Lake

Spectacular to look at, Stockton Lake can be found just 10 km out of Collie on Piavaninni Rd, off Coalfields Hwy. 

Little Rock

Little Rock is ideal for families with younger children as there is a large shallow pool for them to explore and splash around in while the grown ups are just an arms length away.

You will find Little Rock on Lennard Drive in Wellington National Park. Follow the signs from the Kiosk at the Dam to Honeymoon Pool and watch out for the Little Rock sign.

Long Pool 

Long Pool is also located on Lennard Drive, Wellington National Park and is the perfect spot to cool off on a hot summers day. The waters are refreshingly cool all year round.

Picnic tables are provided and don’t forget to send us that selfie taken on the steps.

Sandy

You will find this perfect yellow sand beach just around the bend, downstream, from Minninup Pool, only five minutes from town on Mungalup Rd. Turn off at Caltex on Throssel St..

If you have 4WD you can park right on the waters edge, otherwise there is some parking on the edge of the track about 20-30m away.

Pets are welcome, but please clean up after them!

Honeymoon Pool

Nestled beneath a fringe of weeping Peppermint trees, Honeymoon Pool is the heart of the Wellington National Park. 

Honeymoon Pool is perfect for all ages. There is a shallow section where littlies can play and splash and a deeper section for swimming and a bombie off the deck if you dare!

Minninup Pool

Minninup Pool is only a definite favourite with locals. Only three km from town, on Mungalup Rd, off Throssell St. The river widens out at this point forming a wide deep pool ideal for swimming and picnics on the banks

Black Diamond

Black Diamond needs no introduction. The magic blue water attracts hundreds of visitors every year. Please remember it is a day use area only, no camping, public toilets are in Allanson (no using the bush) and respect the privacy of the people who live around the lake, because they actually own half of it!
