This waterfall is surrounded by moss and a fern-filled gully with sandstone cliffs around the edges. There is a sandstone overhang next to the waterfall. The shallow sandy pool is a lovely cool place, a great spot to stop for a snack. The track crosses the creek using a bridge in front of the waterfall.
The pool derives its name from the Pool of Siloam (Birkhat Hashiloah – Hebrew) in the City of David and in the Bible is where Jesus sends a man to heal him of his blindness.
Gordon Falls Reserve has electric BBQ’s, toilets, children’s play equipment, and picnic tables. There are a number of artificial cave shelters, with picnic tables inside. A great spot to enjoy a snack.
