From the bins at the bottom of Jellybean Pool car park, the walk heads down the hill to the 'Jellybean Pool' sign next to the stairs. The walk heads down the stairs and soon turns right, under the rocks. The track then leads below the rocks and turns left, down the metal stairs to the rock platform above Jellybean Pool.

Jellybean Pool Alt = 62 m
Jellybean Pool is a large pool in Glenbrook Creek, just south of the weir. The pool has a few sandy beaches, rock platforms and is surrounded by cliffs. Jumping and diving is not a good idea, and is not permitted. This is a popular spot for locals to swim. Swimming can be dangerous - the creek is especially dangerous after rain. Check with rangers before heading in.
