Aqua water, white sand

Swimming in this lake of aqua crystal clear water was so enjoyable. The sand is white and soft. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Loved our time there. Could have stayed longer for another swim unfortunately we were on the coach and had to leave with them. Gorgeous place to visit.

It's part of the tours so it's highly likely you will go there if on an organised tour, have a swim in the clear waters and soak up the history of the place, for me it was the highlight of a tour. The beach sand is pure white, the shallow waters aquamarine and refreshing!

The clear blue water is postcard perfect. The water was warm and the surroundings provided a peaceful natural ambience.

At anytime of the day it is worth a visit. Just stand and look at it, then go and plunge into the perfectly pure, clear, cool water. It is so good! I could have stayed the whole day. The feeling of well being when you l leave stays with you. Amazing!

Loved loved it the whitest sand was like talcum powder And the water was about 22 degrees perfect for swimming at the end of a very hot day tour

The 4WD bus ride experience was very bumpy although to be fair we were seated on the rear seats Lol Such a beautiful place, filled with history and natural beauty.

Best place to spend a few hours. No food allowed at the lake. Fresh water lake, very deep. Would definitely recommend a visit. Was the highlight of our trip.

Fantastic time at this wonderful lake high up on Fraser Island. The water was very warm and surprisingly buoyant.
