Lake Wabby, Fraser Island

Lake Wabby Beach, Fraser Island
The beach at Lake Wabby is at a steep incline from the sand dune, it gets pretty crowded

One of the many lakes on Fraser Island, Lake Wabby is an essential stop on your Fraser excursion. Its like a desert oasis in that you’ve got to hike several kilometers from the beach, with the end being through a sand dune, and over a hill, where you’ll stumble upon the lake in the middle of nowhere. Its algae covered bottom gives it a dark green color, but the water is actually quite clear. In it you’ll find loads of catfish swiming around you, it seems as if you can reach out and grab them, but apparently nobody has ever been fast enough to actually catch one.
