The sands around the lake are composed of pure, white silica and the water in the lake is also so pure it is unsuitable for many species.
Facilities for visitors around the lake include camping and picnic areas as well as toilets and barbecues.
In March 1944 a training camp, the second on the island during World War II, was established at the lake. It was closed late the same year.
The lake served as the final Roadblock location and the finish line of the reality competition series The Amazing Race Australia 2.
