Parks and recreation
Cool off in the regional parks and forests. There is a great range of natural swimming areas to choose from:
We do not recommend swimming south of Burdan's Gate in East Harbour Regional Park nor in Gollan's Stream near the Butterfly Creek picnic area.
Check out our bathing water quality monitoring pages to see where it's healthiest to swim.
Check out our toxic algae pages for current river warnings and background information including photos.
