After we heard there where these travel vouchers going around, we decided to find the best secret swimming holes in South Australia!

Just incase you wanted to avoid any major beaches and low-key pretend your on a private island in Thailand or a Mexican cenote!

Maybe one of these swimming holes will be the right spot for you…

Piccaninnie Ponds Conservation Park

Snorkel through this amazing underwater world. If you’re brave enough (and have the right equipment) you can dive into a huge underwater cavern called The Cathedral.

Ewen Ponds Conservation Park

These spring-fed limestone ponds are another one perfect for snorkelers and divers. Three 10m deep basin shaped ponds are connected by channels which you can swim along.

Whalers Way

You’ll need to stop by the Port Lincoln Visitor Centre for a car access permit and key hire before heading to Whalers Way. There’s a swimming hole amongst the rockpools that can only by reached by a short climb.  

Pool of Siloam

This salt lake is seven times saltier than the sea – which makes the water extremely buoyant!

Dalhousie Springs

Head to the edge of the Simpson Desert for an unexpected swimming experience. The temperature ranges from 38 to 43 degrees in these natural hot springs!

It's time to reconnect, reset, and most importantly…relax!
