Five Mile Creek, Cardwell State Forest, QLD

Five Mile Creek Swimming Hole is located 8km south of Cardwell just off the Bruce Highway. It is in the Cardwell State Forest and is a brilliant place to swim and snorkel. You can jump off the little cliff into the waterhole. It is safe from crocodiles here as it is far enough up a rocky creek and crocs can't climb over rocks. There is a picnic area and toilets.
