Have you heard about the brown lake at Moreton Island that’s called Blue Lagoon?

According to the info on Tangalooma Island Resort’s website, the surprisingly brown colour of this natural freshwater lake is caused by the natural tea tree oils infused within the lake.

Why visit the Blue Lagoon when you’re exploring Moreton Island

It’s a popular and safe swimming location among locals and tourists in the summer.

As we visited during the cooler months (end of May), I was happy to skip swimming this time and just relax on the soft, powdery sand among the beautiful views.

Hubby had some sausage sizzle for lunch, cooked on a portable stove which you might want to do too if you go there or pack a picnic.

Save this post for when you’re planning your next escape to Moreton Island – the lake is a must-visit attraction!

How to get to the Blue Lagoon

The roads on Moreton Island are only accessible by 4WD. If you don’t have a 4WD, consider booking a visit to the lake with a 4WD or offroad tour company. Tangalooma Island resort offers tours for example. You can also select from the day tours available at Viator.com from Brisbane and Gold Coast for example.

It’s a short walk from where the car park to the lake.
