Summer has arrived and while we're home to some of the best beaches in the world, it's best to shake things up every now and then!

That is why this list will come in VERY handy to you this summer.

Here are the top swimming holes that are in our backyard.

Gledhill Falls

Location: Tricky to find! From Monavale Rd turn left onto McCarrs Creek Road... Drive for about 5 minutes until you cross a bridge which crosses McCarrs Creek - be prepared to pull over into the makeshift parking!



Mermaid Pools

Location: A 45-minute walk from the carpark off Charles Point Rd, Tahmoor.


Manly Dam

Location: War Memorial Park, King St, Manly Vale


Narrabeen Lagoon

Location: Enter from Birdwood Pde carpark on the south side of bridge, Ocean St, Narrabeen.


South West Arm Pool

Location: Enter from Winifred Falls Fire Trail, off Warumbal Rd, Royal National Park



Lake Parramatta

Location: Enter the reserve from Lackey Street via Bourke St, North Parramatta
