This picturesque picnic area with a cool fresh water swimming hole is nestled within World Heritage rainforest and is part of Tully Gorge National Park.
The swimming hole is 7km from Tully and amenities include a sheltered picnic area with a barbecue, toilets and a carpark. It’s a favourite spot for Tully locals.
Camping is not permitted – Alligators Nest is a day use only area.
Its exotic name came from a young scouting group called the Alligators. They used to meet in the park and called it their “nest”.
