Lake Wabby, the deepest of the Fraser Island lakes, is a barrage lake that was formed by sand dunes blocking a natural spring that fed the lake. The small freshwater lake is surrounded by forests making it one of Fraser Island’s most picturesque lakes - not to mention that its waters are colored green!
Lake Wabby differs from other lakes on Fraser Island as it supports numerous fish species due to the lack of acidity in the water. You might even catch a glimpse of turtles and catfish while you swim.
Check out lovely Lake Wabby while you still can because in a century or so this
lake will be eaten up by the sand dune on its west coast that is slowly
taking over the lake.
Lake Wabby is a 40-minute walk from Eurong, the path is well signposted.
