Brisbane - Blue Lake National Park
On North Stradbroke Island, Blue Lake National Park protects coastal wallum and a freshwater lake of special significance to the local Quandamooka people.
Blue Lake or “Karboora”
is a window lake formed within a hollow in the island’s water table.
Tortoise Lagoon, a small seasonal swamp, is a perched lake, located above
the water table. Fringed with paperbarks, eucalypts, reeds and banksias, these
lakes provide a quiet haven for native animals and visiting bushwalkers. Blue
Lake’s crystal clear, blue waters are home to the soft-spined sunfish.
Reed-filled Tortoise Lagoon is sometimes dry.
