Only a short walking distance from the Archer Camp Sites, Broadwater is a popular waterhole in the summer months. The waterhole,one of many along Neurum Creek, is accessible via a walking track from the picnic area. A short distance of 200 metres brings you to a lovely little swimming spot, perfect for small kayaks and flotation devices. There is also a nice bank area along the waterhole, to lay out in the sun and dry off before heading back to camp. If you’re concerned about the swimming hole being too deep for little ones, either side of the water mass is a trickling stream that runs over rocks and boulders. These spots are great for kids to explore nature and have some fun, from leaf boat races, rock collecting to boulder hoping, whilst still enjoying a little water play.

Falls Lookout is an easy bushwalk that offers a great view of Mount Mee and Neurum Valley.
