Pool of Siloam

A salt lake, reputedly seven times more salty than the sea and it is alleged to possess therapeutic assets. The pools depth although close to the sea does not fluctuate with the tides as its depth relies on soaks in the area. The high salt content in the lake makes swimming very easy, as the water is extremely buoyant. A must for those wanting to relax. Recently it has been found that The Pool of Siloam is actually a Blow Hole, Although it doesn’t blow this is the cause of its such high salt content as it is unable to escape.

Lanky's Walk

Located in Railway Terrace towards the entrance to the Beachport Conservation Park. Follow a well-defined path through natural bush land with native plants named for easy identification. At the end of this walk is Lanky's Well, which was dug to provide water for the police horses. Lanky Kana, a member of the local Boandik tribe, was employed by the police as a tracker and part of his duties included the care of horses. He also camped by the well, hence the name. The walk takes approximately 30 minutes. Maps are available from the Beachport Visitor Information Centre.
