Lake Wabby, Fraser Island

4.4
#4 of 11 in Nature in Fraser Island
Green-colored Lake Wabby is home to several species of native fish and freshwater turtles. You can reach the lake by a long path over Hammerstone Sandblow, a huge sand dune. The sandblow is slowly sliding into the water, and will one day cause the lake to disappear. Walking over this dune can get quite hot during the summer, so it’s a good idea to bring lots of water. Locals use bodyboards to slide off the dune into the lake, while others enjoy relaxing by the water or picnicking on the soft white sand. Do not run into the lake from the sand dune or attempt to dive from there, as many tourists get seriously hurt trying to do this every year. A visit to Lake Wabby represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Fraser Island tour itinerary builder website to plot your vacation.
