Frog Hole, a permanent swimming hole in Purnululu?

We're heading to the Bungles next July and after searching on the internet I have seen a few mentions of a "Frog Hole" in Punululu National Park. From what I can understand it is a permanent swimming hole?! Could you please shed some light on whereabouts in the park this is and is it in fact a swimming hole.
Many thanks.

Frog Hole is not described as an attraction in any of my materials because it has been off limits to the public for several years. (See page 127, "The Northern Area", in my Kimberley Travel Guide. I mention the closure there.)

It was closed because the area up there is too unstable and needs protection. Sorry! There won't be any swimming in Purnululu in July. (If you are lucky, enough water to sit in may be left at Black Rock, but that is a looooong and hard hike, usually done overnight...)
