Blinman Pools are located 520km North of Adelaide in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia.
The trail begins at Angorichina Village,. Angorichina Village is located between Blinman and Parachilna.
Beginning your walk at Angorichina Village, you’ll follow the Parachilna and Blinman Creeks, as they wind their way through beautiful rugged country. In some places, sheer cliffs rise almost straight up from the creekbed, providing a spectacular backdrop.
The Blinman Pools are named after Robert ‘Pegleg’ Blinman. Pegleg was a shepherd at Angorichina Station until 1859 when he discovered a seam of copper and decided to make his fortune as a miner. The mine operated intermittently for 30 years, and in its time was the biggest workings North of Burra.
The two spring-fed creeks keep the first pool filled with water all year round. The second pool is low in summer, but after big rains it can fill up to 3 metres. At these times, the cool green waters stretch about 20-30 metres across.
The Blinman Pools, with their pretty waterfalls, have been popular picnic spots since the 1800s.
