Overview

Coachwood Pool lookout is in Washpool National Park along Coombadjha nature stroll. It’s a peaceful forest place to relax and do some birdwatching.

Next to a pool fed by the waters of Coombadjha Creek, this platform in the midst of coachwood rainforest is the perfect spot to see kingfishers and other forest visitors come to drink. A dip in the clear waters of fern-fringed Coachwood Pool is a great way to cool off on a summer day.
