  • Nice place to visit. You should not miss to visit the Cairns lookout. You can see the entire lake from this point. You will find quala on the trees, emus and wallabies. You should take enough water if you would like to walk around the lake.
  • Had a good time doing BBQ at Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve with mates. Just let you know that there aren't many trash bins around, so you better carry a big plastic bag and bring your trash with you. Nice place and plenty parking spots.
