Wild Swimming Australia

Dive into our map or locations page to discover wild swimming holes across  Australia.


We define wild swimming simply as swimming outdoors in nature. It could be under a waterfall, in a tree-lined creek or at a secluded beach. There’s many reasons you might want to find a beautiful swimming hole. Maybe you want to:

  • Wash off the stress of the city underneath a waterfall.
  • Break up a long journey with a dip in a swimming hole.
  • Get the kids (and yourself) outdoors and playing the way nature intended.

It’s our aim to help you do all this as easily as possible. Because whatever your reasons for wanting to find an epic swimming hole, one thing’s for sure: you want to spend less time searching and more time having fun.


Here’s your step by step guide to finding amazing swimming holes.

  • Click on the pins on the map above to discover swimming spots in a particular location.
  • Use the filters on the locations page to find swimming holes which tick all your boxes when planning a holiday or day trip in Australia.
  • Follow us on Instagram or Facebook to stay up to date with new spots as we discover them.

We have over 1000 wild swimming holes in our database which will be added to the map bit by bit so keep checking in and sign up to our mailing list below.

Come on in…the water’s lovely.
