Had a swim here after a day exploring the Yarra Valley. There’s some interesting history from the Gold Rush era and the water is very family friendly. There are no facilities here, except an area for picnics.
As you come into the Pound Bend carpark you have a picnic area to the right and the short walk to the tunnel on your left.

Love the river, tranquil, beautiful and serene.
