“Great day out”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

It was the first time for us but others with us had gone before. Beautiful sandy beach and we took the nature tour so got to check out the forest and a lake in the sand dunes. Fraser is a unique experience

“Quiet and tranquil”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Loved that this beautiful lake was less visited than Mackenzie. We had it all to ourselves. Crystal clear and gorgeous. Enjoyed a swim but needed the insect repellant.

“Amazing prestine lake with less people”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We visited this lake and on our trip to Fraser Island and it was definitely our favourite. Lake Birrabeen is an absolute hidden gem - it has white(real white) beach that it was better than White Haven beach in Whitsunday, and blue crystal water. Unlike Lake Mckenzie which was so crowded with tourists and big tour buses, this lake had only a few people which let us enjoy our swim in peace. This is a must see place if you visit Fraser Island !

“The Other Fraser Lake”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Everyone know about Lake McKenzie, but when we went there, we found that Lake Birrabeen was on this occasion the pick of the lakes. Also less people, so at times (when the tour buses are not there) you might get the lake to your self :)


Also a short video with our highlights from our trip in Feb 2013.

Nice place for a picnic (tables available)
