Minerva Pool walking track is a 2.4km, grade 3 Return hike located in the Dharawal National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.
For a short, relaxing bushwalk, set aside some time to explore Minerva Pool walking track in Dharawal National Park. This picturesque walk leads you through bushland towards a lookout with views of Minerva Pool.
As you wander, keep an eye out for Sydney golden wattle and mountain devil shrub, which the Dharawal People use for bush food and medicine. If you’re lucky, you may spot the swamp wallabies or yellow-tailed black cockatoos that call this park home.
At the end of the trail you’ll arrive at Minerva Pool, a pristine waterhole with sandstone features and a small stone island. Unpack a picnic lunch and spend some time enjoying the view as you watch the waterfall cascade into the rockpool below.
This is a sacred site for the Dharawal People and an important part of Aboriginal culture, so please remember to tread carefully and with respect during your visit. The Tharawal Local Aboriginal Land Council asks that only women and children enter the waters of Minerva Pool.
