Well worth the walk😎
Apr. 2021 • Family
First up, you do need to walk in to Lake Wabby, a little over 1km each way as I recall. It’s well worth the effort though! Another beautiful lake, but it’s the surrounding dunes that make it really stand out. You can walk in from the beach too, about 2.5km each way. Enjoy...

Hidden gem - worth the bushwalk
Dec. 2020 • Family
The bushwalk into the lake was a bit of work but fun for our large group to do together. Beautiful forest to walk through, and by the time you get to the lake -stunning views and a secluded, beautiful spot - you’ve really earned a relaxing swim! The water is much deeper than at McKenzie and Birrabeen, so keep your kids close. The sand is so soft and beautiful here.

Marvelous lake
Jan. 2020
Lake is not accessible by car, you need to go approximately 1 hour from beach. But I really encourage anyone to go there. Last part of the trail goes on white sand almost burning your feet so I was really keen to jump to refreshing water in lake.
Place is almost not crowded. I met just individuals during my trip to lake.

A lake with a difference
Sep. 2020
We opted to drive from The west beach rather than face th hike over the dunes...if hiking this way be sure to carry water and beware of the heat on the sand!
From car park a walk of about 800m to lake. Steep in places but well planned and maintained. A steep dune into the green water. The walk down is a good opportunity for a close up with flora. Well worth a look.

Awesome lake and walk
Mar. 2020 • Friends
The walk to Lake Wabby is really nice, not too difficult and about 45min of length.
The lake itself is a great place to swim and there are little fish in the lake that eat your dead skin, so you get a free skin care.
Absolutely stunning location.

Beatiful freswater lake surrounded by desert and rain forest
Jan. 2020
Definitely a place you want to visit if you are on Fraser Island, there are tine fishes in the lake that will nibble dead skin off your body if you sit still. Tickles a lot. Bring water and perhaps socks for the walk through the sands if it is sandy, the sand get very hot.

Too much walk
Dec. 2019 • Couples
It’s a lake where we have to walk to see lake, but in summer it’s too hot to walk on sands still if you go to see lookout from there also you have to walk for 1 km.

Great swim among the fish
Nov. 2018
The lake Wabby was a very quiet spot on Fraser Island. There were only a few other people when we were there. We had a great swim. The lake is full of large and very small fish that came to tickle us as we lay drifting in the water. Fun!

A long hard slog, not for the fainthearted!
Aug. 2019
Situated just north of Eurong Beach Resort, this spot is easy to miss. There is adequate parking and it is only a short easy walk to the lookout over the lake. As the trees below have grown so high, not a lot of the lake can be viewed. In addition the sand blow literally hides most of the rest of it too. The sand is estimated to completely cover the lake in around 20 or 30 years. We walked the 30 minutes down the ravine and then slogged it out over the sand dune to the lake. It was an interesting sight and easy to see how it will eventually be covered by the sand blow. There's no shade and so after a half hour wander, we started back. Obviously the trip back is much harder as the ravine is very steep. Very breathless and hard work, not for the elderly or unfit!
