Moderate track
This walk visits the Jellybean Pool, a popular swimming hole and lovely area in Glenbrook Gorge. Starting at the Glenbrook entrance to the Blue Mountains National Park, the walk follows a well maintained track down the hill, crossing a road a couple of times to come to the Jellybean Pool. The river can be particularly dangerous after rain, so if in doubt check with the rangers. A great place to cool off on hot days. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharug & Gundungurra people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Getting started
From the bottom of the car park in front at the visitor information centre, the walk follows the direction of the 'Jellybean Pool' sign down the hill. The path leads down the hill passing two benches (on the right) and then descends track (and steps) into the bush. The track winds down the hill for a while, crossing a road two times on the way. The walk comes to the road a third time, just before the end of the sealed section, at a large gravel clearing (Jelly Bean Pool car park). The walk continues down the car park to the bins at the bottom, near a 'Jelly Bean Pool' sign.....

Jellybean Pool
Jellybean Pool

Jellybean Pool is a large pool in Glenbrook Creek, just south of the weir. The pool has a few sandy beaches, rock platforms and is surrounded by cliffs. Jumping and diving is not a good idea, and is not permitted. This is a popular spot for locals to swim. Swimming can be dangerous - the creek is especially dangerous after rain. Check with rangers before heading in.
