Burnett swimming spot a holiday haven

UTOPIA Falls near Biggenden has been featured on the Queensland National Parks Facebook site as a place to visit with the family.

With recent rainfall transforming the area into a nature lover's playground, the secluded spot, at Mt Walsh National Park, is attracting visitors from all over Queensland.

A spokesman for the National Park said there was a lot of history at Utopia Falls.

"Otherwise known as Utopia Falls, the creek cascades through a series of rock pools that have potholed into the granite by years of water erosion,” the spokesman said.

"After a moderate level 3km walk, this spot is definitely a great reward for your effort.”

Elisha Taderera visited Utopia Falls, also known as Utopia Rock Pools, and said the trip was an amazing experience.

"We hiked up Mt Walsh to where the rock pools were and we had some food and cooled down in the refreshing world rock pools after the 3km hike up the mountain path,” Elisha said.

"I love that Utopia Falls is open to the public and it's a great spot to visit with mates and with family.”
