On North Stradbroke Island, Blue Lake National Park protects coastal wallum and a freshwater lake of special significance to the local Aboriginal people, the Quandamooka.
Walk through wallum woodlands with stunted eucalypt trees, wallum banksias and a flowering heath understorey to Blue Lake. Take your camera and binoculars. Look for birds, sand goannas and swamp wallabies early morning and late afternoon. Enjoy the wildflowers in spring.
Blue Lake or Karboora is a window lake formed with a hollow in the islands water table. Blue Lakes’ crystal clear, blue waters are home to the soft-spined sunfish.Visit Website
