POLL: Where is the best place to go swimming in the region?

IT'S that type of weather that you'd rather be at your favourite swimming hole than stuck in an office.

Well, at least for those not at home looking after the kiddies on school holidays.

While a good splash or soak sounds ideal, sometimes it can be difficult to decide where to go in the region, especially with so many great places to pick from.

So, The Bulletin asked readers where their favourite swimming spots are and here is what they said:

Danielle Harding - Capricorn resort in yeppoon

Paul Baker - Stoney creek.

Anne Hicks - my house, BUT it must pass the toe test

Dan Harkin - Toe test?

Anne Hicks - lol, to see if it is warm enough to plunge the rest of my body in to the pool

Best swimming spots in Rockhampton region?
