About this place
Greens Pool lies on the edge of William Bay National Park and is famous for its large granite boulders, green turquoise water and white sandy beach. Boulders surround the pool and protect it from the might of the Southern Ocean.
Beautiful at all times of the year, Greens Pool is especially popular in summer. The calm waters are a great spot to explore for the whole family. You can swim, snorkel and relax on the beach or on the rocks overlooking the water.
Why not go for a snorkel to explore the fascinating seascape and see the many fish and sea creatures that live in the calm waters. Zebra fish, silver drummer, six-spined leatherjackets and mosaic sea stars are just some of the creatures you may encounter.
William Bay National Park is very popular in peak periods such as school and public holidays and there are limited parking spaces so visit the park outside of these times if you can. Camping is not permitted in William Bay National Park.
A short walk links Greens Pool with Elephant Rocks, another amazing spot for a swim.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
