“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

Like stepping into the setting of a movie, with the rainforest to one side, the sand dune to the other and the green water of Lake Wabby between, it's breathtaking.

“Nature at its best . . .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2011

Its quite a walk to this lake and at times strenuous, but I think anybody old or young should be able to manage, just remember to take plenty of water.
The lake itself if dark green and full of catfish, and is lovely to cool off in after the walk.

“Good for a swim!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

The walk from the beach isn't that far its quite hard going walking though the sand so perfect spot for a cool down swim amongst the fish.

“Beautiful Stunning Green/Blue Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2011

This lake can be reached by a 4WD and is well signposted. We drove to a point and walked about 30 mins each way (some sections are steep) to access the lake. The lake is completely surrounded by shifting sand and it was warm in Sep 2011. We laid by the lake and relaxed. The climb up the sand dunes back to the point was challenging to say the least and hence be realistic about your fitness level.
