So tranquil and beautiful. We couldn’t do the boat ride because of covid but we enjoyed every minute of being at the lake. Teas, iced coffees and scones are amazing! We have been back several times... more »
Truly beautiful place, heavily frequented by tourists but still worth visiting. Don't be concerned by the sign telling you about the crocodile, it's just a "Freshie" (fresh water crocodile) the are shy fish eaters with no interest in nibbling on humans, even children are safe so long as they are left well alone.
The afternoon tea was absolutely delicious. Home made and overlooking the lake was so peaceful and serene
