Surrounded by World Heritage rainforest, Lake Paluma (12 km north-west of Paluma) is a popular spot for swimming, canoeing and kayaking, so bookings are essential. The lake is a well-known wildlife-watching area, with opportunities to see platypus, peregrine falcons and eastern water dragons. The day-use area has BBQs and weatherproof shelters, and there’s a drinking-water storage area. Heavy rain and strong winds can lead to road closures, and the gravel access road is unsuitable for caravans. Note: motorised boating is not permitted on the lake.
