Picnic area and toilets well maintained. The Lake was perfect with crystal clear water. Good amount of parking.

As many do, we also dip into water, swam around and enjoyed this beautiful lake. It was a bit rainy in the end, so the colors were not so superb. Really worth to visit.

Very pretty to look at , and the superfine white sand is pretty cool but the water itself is yellow brown and reminiscent of something unpleasant,

The sand is so pure I recommend anyone to scrub their entire body with it. You get out of the lake 10 years younger!

This is a must see place on the island and don't forget to bring your swimmers along. All tours do this but you must walk down the hill about 200mtrs and have a swim. Cahnge sheds and toilets are provided to change in and outb of your costumes at the end of your swim.

It's just so relaxed and comfortable staying in the beautiful 'white' lake for the afternoon. The water was so clear and made me feel fresh!!

Swimming in Lake McKenzie was clearly our highlight in Fraser Island. We read on the information boards that using sun lotion or insect repellents are not allowed, because it will pollute the lake and as the lake is a closed system, the pollution will stay very long in the lake. We washed out and rubbed away all our sun lotion... More
