A refreshing stop 60km north of Townsville, Rollingstone Creek is a beautiful place to stop for a quick swim or picnic. The water is cold and best after some rain. Shade is limited so bring a hat and suncreen. There are free camping grounds and lovely areas to explore. There are suitable swimming areas for smaller children and deeper water for adults and older children.
I had to stop at the rusty old vintage truck next to the Rollingstone Hotel to have a photo.
