Lake Argyle was spectacular. When we left Brisbane we hadn’t even really heard of Lake Argyle and did not have any plans to stop in there. However, nearly every person we spoke to along the way on the trip said we had to go in and see it and we are so glad we did – it is really difficult to explain how beautiful it was. So, some photos first.
The Lake is massive! It is Australia’s largest fresh water lake and covers an area of more than 900 square kilometres! We camped for two nights at the campground there and one of the perks of having our trip shortened was that we have been able to splash out on a few things we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford to do and one of those was a sunset cruise on the Lake. We all really enjoyed the cruise which was good as it was very expensive!!! The cruise started at 1pm in the reception area with a history on the building of the lake and we then spent the rest of the afternoon until about 6pm cruising around on the lake. The photos give you a bit of an idea of what we got to see …………………
The cruise was extravagant but we all loved it! The other great thing about Lake Argyle was that we met a lovely family from Townsville here and spent a great night chatting to them around the campfire – we then got to meet up with them again at Middle Lagoon and it has been a real highlight of the trip for us to meet some great new friends! Big shout out to Geoff, Trice and the kids – we’ll catch up with you again back in Far North Qld!!!
Lake Argyle is a definite must see in our book!!!
