In the small town of Maidenwell, look for the sign to Coomba Water Hole near the General Store ( opposite the turn-off to The Bunya Mountains ).
Once at the Coomba Water Hole Carpark, follow the very well maintained timber pathway to the water hole. There are a few sets of stairs on this pathway, but nothing difficult.
Beautiful spot for a picnic !

Stairs have been upgraded in recent years making the climb to the water hole very pleasant

Nice place for picnic/ walks and swim in the waterhole during summer !

We've been here a number of times and it really is a great place. If you're in the area you must take a look. The path down is no longer a path, but a well constructed set of stairs. It really isn't much of a path anymore. Never the less, pretty easy.

Beautiful little spot!

A very nice little spot, thats easy to miss from the road. Look for the sign near the General Store in the small town of Maidenwell. Once at the Waterhole Carpark, follow the easy path down to the waterhole.
A reasonable sized grassy area is near the water, which overlooks a small waterfall. Easy walk for most people.

A gem hidden on a back road. Not the best signposted place in the area, but a picturesque spot none the less.

Often visited this place with school friends for a swim and a picnic.
