Just a short walk from Fortesque Falls is Fern Pool. A stunning pool with crystal clear water and a small waterfall feeding it. The contrasting colours of the iron oxide rocks against the lush green ferns and other vegetation and the crystal clear water was so inviting and truly breathtaking. We spent quite a long time here taking in this beautiful spot and swimming under the waterfall.
When you have little fish nibbling at your feet while you’re trying to descend in to the freezing water 😂🐟 At least the refreshing swim kept us cool for the rest of the hike! The colours in Karijini are just incredible, make sure you get up early & explore if you ever decide to visit :) . . . . . . .
I didn’t know if I could swim here at Fern Pool or not. I’d never swam underneath a waterfall before so I was super determined but it was so cold! I’m such a wimp when it comes to cold water haha but I did it, and it was soooo amazing!
