About Crystalbrook Lodge

This secret outback mecca for keen fishermen and nature lovers is an oasis of luxury perched over the spectacular Crystalbrook Lake. A haven to a staggering range of wildlife including birds, freshwater crocodiles and fish, you can spend your days on the lake or riverside, exploring the bush wilderness or just enjoying the serenity and stillness of the outback in the lodge’s private manicured grounds. Enjoy elegant outdoor dining overlooking the lake with a menu featuring the best of the rich local produce of the region.


1. Explore one of the many trails such as the Lakeside Trail Loop with our experienced guide - great for bird watching or you can take a fishing rod and throw in a line.

2. Glide along the lake aboard the electric boat - perfect for fishing or wildlife watching amongst the lily pads..... get ready for a barra or one of the dozen or so native fish species in the lake.  A photographer's paradise! 

3. Spend an afternoon chatting over tea and scones on the verandahs of the historic Crystalbrook Homestead 20 minutes away and you'll feel like you're in the last century.  You'll see the prize Brangus cattle in the yards and maybe see them being rounded up.

4. Take out a kayak or two and go exploring the far reaches of the lake - you might see a herd of wild brumbies or silently become part of the lake's daily rhythm as dainty Lotus Birds walk by on Lily pads and Jabiru and other water birds go about their business.

5. Hire a helicopter for the day and go river fishing for barra.... or explore
