Rio On Pools

Just off the main road in the Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve, before reaching Augustine Village, lies the picnic shed and parking area of the popular Rio On Pools. The soothing sounds of cascading water are heard as visitors approach the picnic site.

The picture revealed from the riverbank high above is absolutely breathtaking ~ Wide open expanse of pine forest, small waterfalls making their journey over large granite rocks, spilling into cool round pools all connected by natural waterslides as the river makes its way downstream ~ truly a view never to be forgotten.
