I did this walk with my friend when returning from a trip to the Shoalhaven. This track combines two walks in the Dharawal National Park - the easy walk to O’Hares Creek lookout, a platform overlooking the rugged valley and O’Hares Creek, and a moderate walk down into the valley to visit Minerva Pool, a place of importance for the Aboriginal Dharawal People.

The large circular waterhole at Minerva Pool is quite interesting, and as per Aboriginal custom is restricted to women and children. It nether less is very nice to see.
