This was actually the first sinkhole lake which we saw and were amazed by the crystal clear, blue water. Didn't swim in it ourselves - just checked out the small native fish and took photos.

Nice place with a pontoon to enter the water. Steps down but no changerooms, toilets etc. No seating and minimal shade. Not suitable for younger children and only competent swimmers as it's very deep.

We drove to see what it was like. Very average. The car park surface needs doing. It probably wasn't worth it but it was only a few kms off the road so we had a look anyway.
