Wear your jewellery as the sand cleans it up to look brand new! The water is crystal clear but goggles make it better.

This place is awesome. On a sunny day the water is so clear. If you can get there before ten or after three and you will not have to share as much

There is a lot of tourist buses. There is another lake called Birrabeen just as pretty and usually there is no one there and you have the whole lake to yourself.

a beautiful freshwater lake... after driving 4x4 for about 30mins through subtropical rainforests you will arrive at the most amazing lake you will ever see in Australia....

Its hard to believe its in the middle of an island. But it is a sand island. Only down side is the number of people but you cant blame it for being so popular. Good washroom facilities too.

How could you not love a crystal clear lake with a smooth white sandy bottom free from; sharks, sea lice, crabs, jelly fish. Simply idyllic.
