NPWS Glenbrook Information Centre Alt = 144 m
The NPWS information centre and car park are found just before the 'toll both' on Bruce Road. You will find tap water, toilets, garbage bins and information signs about the region. A great spot to chat to staff and get updates on the conditions in the park.

(0 km) Glenbrook Information Centre car park to Jelly Bean Pool car park
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 394 m Time = 10 mins
Climb = 2 m Descent = -69 m
From the bottom of the car park in front at the visitor information centre, the walk follows the direction of the 'Jellybean Pool' sign down the hill. The path leads down the hill passing two benches (on the right) and then descends track (and steps) into the bush. The track winds down the hill for a while, crossing a road two times on the way. The walk comes to the road a third time, just before the end of the sealed section, at a large gravel clearing (Jelly Bean Pool car park). The walk continues down the car park to the bins at the bottom, near a 'Jelly Bean Pool' sign.

(0.39 km) Jelly Bean Pool car park to Jelly Bean Pool
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 109 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 1 m Descent = -19 m
Continue straight: 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.
