Pristine, interesting natural setting. Terrific for swimming or photography or picnic. Take a book! Geocaches nearby!

I was amazed at the freshwater lake and when I dove in, it was refreshing and clear. I could of swam all day in it! Lovely and white sand to soak up the sun on.

This is a unique spot. The water was fresh, the sand was white, and the lake is surrounded by green forest. A beautiful setting.

A true conundrum, its beautiful but is somewhere you really want to see in pristine condition not being treated as a teenagers/18-30 style resort. Combine that with the 1-3hr back breaking 4 or 8 wheel drive to get there and you have to conclude that this is a destination which would be better off left unspoilt not given over to the backpackers/discount travellers play pen. The 4WD tourist trade and associated congestion was worse here than anywhere else we have seen in 3 months of touring OZ which is absolutely ridiculous. Save Fraser Island and the Dingo....

Gorgeous lake, with beautiful white sand. Bit of a bumpy drive in from the coast. Shame it was full of backpackers -- literally dozens, very loud. It was a bit like a frat party. Not very peaceful. I'm sure you can pick a better time, or camp nearby at Central Station and beat the day trippers in the morning.
