Blinman Pools Walk
11.6 km

3 h to 5 h

Starting from the Angorichina Village car park on Parachilna Gorge Road, Alpana, this walk takes you to the Blinman Pools and back via the Blinman Pools Walking Trail. Located in a rocky creek bed at the foothills of the Flinders Ranges, the Blinman Pools are beautiful natural pools that have been popular picnic spots since the 1800s. This moderately challenging walk follows the Parachilna and Blinman creeks as they wind through the rugged landscape, forming pools surrounded by aquatic plants below small waterfalls, with sheer cliffs providing a spectacular backdrop. From a small information shelter, the trail descends into Parachilna Gorge behind the village, passing abandoned ruins of settler dugouts and crossing several footbridges along the creek bed, with towering red river gums providing shade along the way. The two spring-fed creeks keep the first pool filled with water all year round, while the second pool is often low in summer but fills up after heavy rains. After spending some time enjoying the pools, walkers can head back along the same route. This walk mostly follows a rocky creek bed, with no formal track, some gentle hills, creek crossings and uneven rocky terrain, suitable for moderate fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
