Activity Category: Swimming Holes
A short 50 minute drive from Melbourne CBD will bring you to Blue Lake swimming hole. It is in an old quarry in Yellow Gum Park adjacent to the Plenty River. The quarry has filled up with water from the rain. Bounded by a vertical rock cliff face on one side and trees on the other, there is enough space to place a picnic rug and sprawl out should you desire.
Directions to Blue Lake Swimming Hole: Head west along Memorial Drive from the town of Plenty Victoria. Turn left onto Goldsworthy Lane and follow the signs to Yellow Gum Park. Take the walking path from the carpark. It’s a short walk down to the gorge.
