Lake Boomanjin, Fraser Island

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The tea-coloured water of Lake Boomanjin appears as a red edge around the lake, where the white sand beneath can be seen through the water. But where the water is deeper, the coloured water becomes like a dark sea reflecting the full blue of the sky.

This is some of the magic of Fraser Island, a UNESCO World Heritage listed site. This almost pristine lake is one of the many freshwater lakes on Fraser Island.

I can't remember if we had the same effect at the lake we've been at Fraser Island. I do know that we enjoyed the island very much Ian. Greetings Berend

Most of the lakes are very tea-coloured, Berend, and the sand is very white in most cases also. This is most likely one of the lakes you visited, and Lake Mackenzie would have been seen too. Lake Wabby is perhaps the most memorable especially if you opted to walk down to it.

Warmest regards,

Yes, Berend, your photo is of Lake Benaroon, which also means that you would have visited Lake Boomajin, as well.
