The Blue Pool is a waterhole and gorge near Briagolong, just half an hour north of Sale. It’s a well-known swimming spot by locals, but has somehow managed to stay off the radar until recently.
The pools consist of a large waterhole that starts off shallow but quickly gets deep. The Bluff is a nice and steep five-minute climb with some amazing views over the Blue Pool area. If you fancy a bit more of a stroll, there is the Peregrine Lookout Trail, which takes about an hour return. Between September to December, you may even be lucky enough to see some of the Peregrine falcons which nest there.
If you want to escape the crowds a bit more, head on down to the Froam Picnic Area. About 600 metres from the pools, it has a BBQ and you can even camp there.
