Lake Boomanjin Fraser Island is located on the Eastern side of Fraser Island and is approximately 10 km north-west of Dilli Village.

Lake Boomanjin Fraser Island is a perched lake of 200 hectares in size and is the largest perched lake in the world. A perched lake is a body of water that is isolated above the groundwater table by a layer of rock, compacted sand or organic matter.

Lake Boomanjin is feed by two creeks that pass through a wallum swamp where it collects tannins which tints the water red.

As vegetation decays in these creeks, the tannins are leached out resulting in transparent, acidic water that is tinted with strain. In other words, it looks a bit like tea or coffee. See the photograph above.

Fraser Island has several great places to see and explore while you stay on the largest sand island in the world. To find more information, click on Fraser Island Camping Grounds.
