Go for a swim in Eli Creek, a scenic freshwater stream and popular picnic area on the island. Renowned for its clean, translucent waters, the creek winds through lush island greenery all the way to the sea. Take a picturesque stroll on the boardwalk following the banks, cool your feet in the chilly waters, or bring an inflatable swim tube and float down the stream.

  • It's only around a fresh water river, but with very clear water, as far as I can remember in drinking water quality. Our bus driver had luckily floats, so we could Bob along the river. Toilets and changing rooms available. Also there is an airline that offers scenic flights. Price is $80 pP for about 5-10 minutes. It is therefore not a reasonable price, as pointed out by the provider, but default rates.

  • Such a beautiful place, even when cloudy. Walk through the creek or use a float ring and watch the nature around you😉
  • Great place however go late in the afternoon when the tourist groups are gone. March flies can be bad.
  • A must visit. Always crowded though so plan when to go if you don't like crowds.
  • Float down a river with no rocks at the bottom. Unbelievable.
  • Nice place to stop, but too many people.
