Angourie Blue and Green Pools
Angourie’s Blue Pool was once a rock quarry that ran across a slight problem. When an underground freshwater spring was disturbed it was suddenly transformed into an aquatic haven. What luck!
Children revel in it for the daredevil opportunities it provides, jumping off the cliffs into the dazzling blue without a care in the world. Ramblers who’ve undertaken the spectacular 10 kilometre coastal walk from Angourie think of nothing but the opportunity to melt into the Blue Pool’s revitalising chill after their hike.
Note: The pools are fresh water and are subject to algal blooms, especially over the warmer months and may not be suitable for swimming at times. Clarence Valley Council monitors the level of algae on a regular basis over the summer and has signs on site to indicate if the pools are open to swimming.
If the pools are closed, you can still swim in the large saltwater rock pool beside the Blue Pool - it's sensational at high tide and perfect for floating around all day long. While you’re in the area be sure to check out Spooky’s Beach.
The area is of significance to the people of the Yaegl Nation, traditional custodians of the land.
