The water is so clean & blue, it's a very special place. Yesterday was so hot & as you walk down the path to the lake you are taken aback by the natural beauty of the lake. Our children aged from 8 to 14 had so much fun here, there's lots of room for everyone. You can play soccer on... More

Just a beautiful spot, the water so clear and the sand so white. Good facilities, good parking. Shame you are not allowed picnics at the beach but understand the reason why. Although we saw no dingoes.

Because of all the tea trees around the lake their oil gives the water a green colour and a bath is really healthy for your skin and hair !

The sand is like powder - exfoliate with it and your skin feels like silk. The rough terrain journey to get here was well worth the bouncing around!!

Beautiful to view, even when the sky is overcast. Magnificent when the sky is blue. Bus parking is now further away from the lake than it was previously, so don't forget to take your towel if you go swimming. The water is warm, but if there's a breeze, you can feel a bit chilly when you get out.

Everything you hear about Lake McKenzie is true. In the middle of a lush rainforest sits a cool, clear, fresh water lake, which you get to swim and play in. Enough said!

The lake is gorgeous and a lovely place to swim. Unfortunately, it is rarely empty of tour groups. Still, definitely a great place to go.

Surrounded by pure white sand it is an absolute privilege to get a refreshing bath and enjoy a sunbath at the beach within pure nature.

Awesome lake with a great breach, gorgeous water, beautiful sand, etc. I could spend days here relaxing - highly recommend! Note: getting to and from the lake requires 4 wheel drive and a vehicle that won't get stuck.
