Whilst New South Wales basks in the summer heat, there are places that hide luxurious pools and cool quiet respites. Rawson Falls in Boorganna Nature Reserve rainforest, part of the network of National Parks, is one such place. A 3km walk from the carpark, is given an advisory 3 hour return down a medium difficulty track.
Along the way Regent Bower birds are building their exotic nests, Blue tongue lizards bask in bright clearings and finches chatter and flit across your path, amongst trees that date back over a thousand years.
Take a towel, plenty to drink and a picnic and enjoy a cool dip in the shallows of the plunge pool and enjoy the undisturbed spectacles of nature.
On the climb back take time to enjoy the rest stops and see the changes in the forest as it climbs from the cool depths to the warm and exposed peak, that enjoys views over the hinterland farms.
