About this place
The area on the west side of the pool is believed to be a Nyoongar camping place. Nyoongar's say the Waugal took a wrong turn at this part of the river and had to squeeze through a crack in the range, before stopping and vomiting out the stones they used for tool making. Today the Walyunga Pool is a pleasant place to rest in the shade of the flooded gums and enjoy the peace of the river.
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!
