Noondamurra Pool is located to the south east of Yuna along the Tenindewa-Nabawa Road. The pool is part of the Northern Loop of the Mullewa Drive Trails, and is a much loved picnic site for local families and tourists alike.
Noondamurra Pool has been a haven for humans and wildlife for many years. Prior to European settlement, Amangu, Naaguja and Wajarri people knew this as a special place and it is now a Registered Aboriginal Site with deep and long-standing mythological connections.
It is also an important water source for many waterbirds.
