Lake Wabby does not have the clear blue colour of Lake McKenzie & it is quite small compared to the size of L. McKenzie but it is very much worth making the effort to reach the lake. It is reached via a two km walk part of which is across a spectacular sand blow which in turn leads to a sand dune which one needs to descend to reach the lake. What goes down has to go up & climbing up the pretty steep dune is a challenge! Two steps forward & three back but everyone in our small group made it without too much difficulty!

We didn’t think this was worth the long 45 minute walk into the lake. The lake itself was average and the walk in was not too demanding but long with some hills. It was an okay place to visit but not our favourite and we wouldn’t do again.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
