Apparently a perch lake can be higher than the surrounding water table due to an impervious base. Supposedly its water is clear and clean.

Penny’s Lagoon is a “perched” or “suspended” lake which means that it is a body of water that sits above the water table and is not fed by a river or stream. There is also no river or stream from which it can drain so the only water it receives is from rain. It is reported that this is one of only 3 “perched” lakes in the world.

Penny’s Lagoon is approximately a 12 klms drive down a good gravel road from the turnoff at Egg Lagoon on the main Currie - Wickham road.

There were a number of children swimming and kayaking in the lagoon and also playing on the sand. The water was refreshing.

Good BBQ facilities and toilets.

We travelled to Penny's Lagoon with King Island Travel. The lagoon is picturesque, children were swimming and canoeing there. A lovely place for a picnic - picnic tables are there too.

A great place to experience the natural floral and fauna of the island. Fantastic beach, if a bumpy road to get there. Would make a great picnic spot and is a rare type of lake.
