Located near the intimate Kingfisher Pool campground, Kingfisher Pool picnic area is a beautiful place to stop for lunch while exploring Heathcote National Park, near Waterfall. Situated along Bullawarring walking track, this walk-in picnic spot is perfect for a break on a longer walk or a quick nature getaway.

Kingfisher Pool picnic area involves an energetic bushwalk, so you’ll have certainly earned a break. While the facilities here include picnic tables, it’s the natural amenities that are most remarkable. A pristine freshwater stream – fringed by Gymea lilies, tea trees and waxflowers – beckons when the weather is hot. Dangle your feet in the water, go swimming, or simply enjoy some birdwatching.

Once you’re done for the day, return the way you came or continue along the track and return via Mooray walking track. Alternatively, you can continue on to Pipeline trail and Goburra track to join Oliver Street to Heathcote train station.
