About Champagne Pools, Fraser Island
You’ll find this place a little way north of the Indian Head. It’s also the only place around where saltwater swimming is allowed (the sea is too rough and to full of dangerous creatures). The pools are basically depressions in the rock, continuously refilled when seawater crashes into a fine and furious spray. The name itself comes from the foam that the crashing creates. The place is like Mother Nature’s own Jacuzzi.

Champagne Pools, Fraser Island Reviews
Bit rough for the kids near high tide but "must see" spot. Lowish tide best time to go. Rocks are slippery. Kids loved the waterfalls coming off the rocks back into the pools.
Awesome spot, although pick your tides. We unfortunately didn't get to see the pools as the tide was too high but the waves crashing over the rocks giving us a shower on a hot summers day was fantastic!
Loved it. Seriously special place. Just make sure you go when the tide is high for the best experience.
Great place to visit. Kids loved playing in the water and seeing the fish and other animals in there. Carpark was a million degrees and was long way from here.
Amazing natural pools that change almost every month! Take some underwater goggles, there are a lot of fish in the water. ;)
