Located in St Johns Brook Conservation Park, Workmans Pool is situated close to picturesque river pools, making it a favourite for swimming and picnicking.

Workmans Pool earnt its name from the fact that workers from the mill in the 19th century were not allowed to bathe at nearby Barrabup Pool. The area has a fascinating saw-milling history from early last century that is still evident today around nearby Barrabup Pool and along the Old Timberline Trail – a track that can be enjoyed on foot or bike, and connects with the Munda Biddi.

Surrounded by forest, there are 6 campsites on the banks at the Workmans Pool Campround. Campsites cannot be booked and operate on a first come, first served basis. Toilets, fire wood and rubbish disposal is provided and pets are not permitted.
