Why this Hike
This hike in the Flinders Chase National Park takes you along a moderately challenging track right the way to Blinman Pools. The hike is demanding in areas but certainly is rewarding as you see the stunning rough country this walk sits in.
Track Notes & Overview
Starting from Angorichina Village just off Parachilna Gorge Road the walk follows Blinman Pools Walking Trail as it winds around the creek and over several footbridges. Along the way you will meet many towering cliffs and after about 6km of walking you should reach the pools. The pools and their occasional waterfalls can be quite beautiful when visited between April and October and is certainly worth the walk. Once you have spent some time by the pools you can begin the walk back along the same track you took to get to the pools and then return home.
