The Blinman Pools walk follows the rocky creek beds of Blinman and Parachilna Creeks. You can admire beautiful cliffs, rock pools, small waterfalls, whilst you zigzag your way along the creek dry bed.
The First Pool is after 5 km and the Second Pool after 6 km. The first pool is filled with water, nearly all year around. The second pool can be low of water in summer.
In 1927 a hostel was set up for returned soldiers with tuberculosis at Angorichina Village.
The Blinman Pools name comes after Robert Pegleg Blinman, who was a shepherd at Angorichina Station until 1859. He discovered copper and became a miner.
The walk begins at Angorichina Village. This a linear walk.
We left a car at Angorichina Village and another car at the end of the walk, at Parachilna Road.
Alternative if you can not leave two cars at each end, is to retrace your steps back to Angorichina Village from the second pool. Total distance for this alternative walk will be 12 km.
Time: 6 hours
Best time April-October
You need to ensure you carry enough water for this walk. I recommend to carry about 3L of water.
