Route/Trail notes:

The walk around the island can be undertaken by completing the two branches of the track which goes partially around each side of the island. Depending on water levels you can walk right round the island’s foreshore with ease, or you could opt to cut across the island or just do each branch of the track.



Other References/Comments:

There is remote bush camping (fees apply) available, but you need to be totally self-sufficient.

Visited here in 2021 on my way out of Carnarvon Gorge. Did not spend too much time there other than walking around the ‘Island’ and enjoying the views across the lake. I read something about the fact the lake is only 160 years old and continually getting larger every time there are floods in the area. In 1865 it was only 1km wide and now about 8km wide.
