Great Places to Swim Around Kenilworth

A trip to Kenilworth in the summer months would not be the same without a swim in some of our best waterholes.

The Mary River and the many creeks that flow into it offer diverse and interesting swimming experiences for the traveller and local alike. The great part of swimming around Kenilworth is that unless you enter a waterway during periods of flood… and we strongly recommend that you don’t…. it is remarkably safe and free from hazards.

There are no crocodiles, sharks, sea lice, rips, or other bitey things to worry about! And the water is fresh and cleansed by multiple sand bars, acting as a remarkable filter. One of the few hazards to be aware of after periods of heavy rain, are strong currents in a few locations…. usually these are short stretches of river… and where they connect with logs lying across the creek or river, are best avoided.

We have also heard of the occasional youth whizzing downstream enjoying the rapids, and then finding that it got dark before they made their way back upstream to their point of entry.
