  • So amazing! Clear refreshing water and the fish will swim around your feet. Peaceful, beautiful and relaxing!!
  • Gorgeous place to swim on a hot day.... Even great for kids.
  • The most beautiful spot I have ever seen in my life. something very magical or spiritual about this spot
  • Clear water, great to swim in but the presence of a crocodile makes it a slightly more nervous swim. Still, a beautiful place to visit for a picnic and a swim.
  • Beautiful place. Easy walking track partial way round the lake with platform lookouts over the lake where you can see the fish and may even spot a turtle. The water is very clear and blue. There's a sign stating that a crocodile lives in the lake: "It's non-life threatening and only a few incidents have been reported." Makes it sound like you should be wary but you can still swim just stay away from the croc! But a "few incidences" is vague... and you don't know where the croc is! We enjoyed our swim though (near the edge). There are also toilets (I always think that's worth noting!)
