Mt Barney Lower Portals

This totally wild location is absolutely beautiful and relatively remote. The main attraction is a breath taking swimming hole surrounded by rock walls that stays very, very cool all year round. An awesome spot for a day hike or a great spot for overnight camping trip. The hike in is 6km, but no big hills, just a slightly undulating track.
