If you have the time, then there is a lovely walking trail that traverses around the blue lake and along the waterway.

Used to be Black Swans years ago, now you are lucky if you spot a platypus, although they are there they tell me.

We walked around the lake with our grandchildren and their elderly grandmother The lake is an extraordinary colour and well worth the very easy walk On one of our visits we saw a platypus in the pool but sadly not on this visit

Worthwhile to visit it with caves. the blue colour is due to minerals from the mountains. No harm to have a look.
