Beginning your walk at Angorichina Village, you’ll follow the Parachilna and Blinman Creeks, as they wind their way through beautiful rugged country.

In some places, sheer cliffs rise almost straight up from the creekbed, providing a spectacular backdrop.

You should see lots of euros (small kangaroos), you may spot some white cockatoos, parrots and galahs, and if you’re very quiet and very lucky you could come across some wild ducks on the pools. Meanwhile, high above soars the wedgetailed eagle.

The two spring-fed creeks keep the first pool filled with water all year round. The second pool is low in summer, but after big rains it can fill up to 3 metres. At these times, the cool green waters stretch about 20-30 metres across. The Blinman Pools, with their pretty waterfalls, have been popular picnic spots since the 1800s.
