We took the trails that lead around part of the lake and had a great walk. It is such a pretty setting. You go along a stream and they some bay areas. They say you sometimes see platypuses but we didn't get lucky.

Walking around the lake was absolutely stunning. The air was quite brisk, but being appropriately rugged up helped avoid the tricky situation of overheating or being too cold. It can be quite windy in the exposed car park, but while walking around the lake, the wind is not really prevalent at all.

I finally relaxed in the beautiful forests around Lake St Clair. Stunning scenery if you love nature.

Worth stopping for and admiring the view, if you are passing by Derwent Bridge. Great views of the lake and the mountains in the background.

Best explored if two days are allowed for a walk along the shore line to Narcissus Hut and back by by boat. Ok for day trippers taking a detour from the West Coast Highway to have a Look and stretch the legs.

I was expecting a lot more coming to lake St. Clair, I am from canada so I guess the whole big fresh water lake doesn't impress me as much as most but at least Dove lake had a nice mountain beside it and better hikes around it. I felt like this was more of a family weekend stop than a... More

Easy access, great views and knowing how pure the water is here and its incredible depth of 160 meters, (the deepest inland body of water in Australia) made this a very special place for us.

paid my access fee 33.00 but as we only wanted to see the lake and not do a hike. wife handicapped and would have found bus hard to take. We should be allowed to drive up to entrance of lake and take a few photos and go for a few $'s . Spent our time in Sheffield instead
