Lake Birrabeen, Fraser Island

Fraser Island is world famous for being one of Australia’s natural wonderlands, with stunning beaches, lush forests and extraordinary biodiversity all part of the island’s special makeup. Another thing Fraser Island has a stellar reputation for is its crystal clear lakes, with the likes of Lake McKenzie and Lake Birrabeen being some of the best places to chill out and swim on the island.

Lake Birrabeen is the less crowded of the two, meaning lucky visitors have ample space to chill out, catch some rays, take a refreshing dip and even take part in awesome water activities like standup paddle boarding!

Lake Birrabeen, while not as famous as McKenzie, actually has far more beachfront, and is the perfect way to chill out on Fraser Island after taking part in some of these awesome activities…

Either way, you’re sure to see some of Australia’s most impressive tropical wilderness on a Fraser Island hike.
