Bride's Pool

Bride's Pool is in Plover Cove Country Park. I've read two stories about how the location got its name.

One legend says that a bride was being transported to her wedding in a sedan chair by four porters on her way to meet her groom in stormy weather. As they passed along a path near the pool, one of the porters slipped and the bride fell into the pool and drowned.

A sadder version says that a long time ago a young lady was in love with a young man. However, her parents did not approve of this love affair and she was forced to marry somebody else that she did not love. The new bride was so upset that she jumped into the pool and died.

Regardless, Bride's Pool is a popular place to go hiking as we found out last week. Theses photos are all from our nature walk.


  1. Bride's Pool is such a good place to be instantly surrounded by God's creation. It was there that I saw for the first time REALLY serious Chinese hikers. Well done big and little Aussies!
    Is the Chinese border quite close by or am I thinking of somewhere else!?

    Is it quite close to the China border or am I thinking of somewhere else.

  2. Looks like fun guys! Guess Craig & Keegan must be pretty excited with the cricket at the moment, it's pretty impressive viewing! Hope you're getting to see some on tv...we're off to the Perth test next week!
