Long Pool soon to be WA’s next Instagram’s hotspot.
No this isn’t Honeymoon Pool, but just a few kilometers upstream from Honeymoon Pool along Lennard Drive you will find Long Pool.
Long Pool is the last of four magnificent swimming and picnic spots along Lennard Drive in the Wellington National Park near Collie and if you are looking for a spot away from the crowds, this could be your ticket.
You will be taken away with the beautiful bushland surroundings of Long Pool with weeping peppermint trees as they grace the banks and the waters shimmering blue and green, reflecting the sky and surrounding bush – very Instaworthy.
Long Pool itself is also plenty big enough for swimming and even kayaking as there are easy access steps directly down into the cool waters.
However, for the perfect Instagram snap we’d recommend grabbing your favourite float and simply jumping on to relax in the calm waters as you take in the sights and sounds of the surrounding nature.
After all that swimming, kayaking and floating you will no doubt be a little hungry.
Make sure to pack some snacks with picnic tables available so you can sit back under the trees and relax in between refreshing swims.
How to get to Long Pool
Long Pool is #SoSecret that not even Google knows about it yet.
As it is not yet marked on Google Maps and Lennard Drive is also not named you will find the swimming hole between Falcon Road near the Dam and River Road near Honeymoon Pool.
