Located in the Mount Surround area (near Giru), it's yet another beautiful spot inside Cape Bowling Green National Park. Just off the highway, you'll find Double Creek with fresh water running straight down from the Elliot Massif, this is a perfect place for a summer's weekend day trip. Enjoy Pangola Falls, Double Creek Falls, and its Double Gorge.
Once was a popular camping retreat known as Pangola Park by locals, it was a caravan park that allowed public access to that swimming hole and the national park it bordered. Apparently, crippling insurance costs forced Pangola Park to close in the early 1990s.
It is best accessed via private property so prior permission is required if taking this route. However, the area can also be accessed via the national park side.
