The Graceful Cyclists

Cycle touring and other adventures

Ellendale Pool

I’ve mentioned this before, but one of the perks of my job is being able to stop in at interesting locations near my work sites. At the moment I am spending a little time based out of Geraldton in Western Australia, and instead of heading straight home from the office today I decided to turn off the main drag at the big brown sign to Ellendale Pool. Not having a clue what I was heading towards, or how far down the road it might be is always a little worrying but today it worked out when I noticed the trees thickening and a few reeds starting to survive in the creek lines.

Soon I was driving parallel to what looked like a rather health swamp, but after taking another turn off I started to see glimpses of water. Ellendale Pool turned out to be a large spring fed billabong at the bend in a big cliff line. A few slightly worrying signs (not sure if I want meningitis) stopped me from swimming, or at least until I have spoken to some locals in the know.
