This place is spectacular. We went there by rental car which was a good idea. We arrived around 8:30 and the place was empty. When the first tours arrived it lost a bit of it's magic, so we were really lucky we went there early.

Beautiful beach, white sand, clear water. Wish I could spend all day here. Well worth the money to get there and the time. One of the best experiences I have ever had.

A lake of meltwater and only much wildlife beyond the ordinary makes it worth a visit. Take the swim...

Fraser island is an amazing place to visit and Lake McKenzie has to be one of the highlights. A rainwater lake in the centre of the island with water so incredibly clear. It can get a bit crowded when several 'Adventure' buses arrive but that doesn't detract from the beauty of it.

I have never seen water as clear as at Lake McKenzie. What a beautiful place ! We went over there by a tour and we were able to swim over there as well.

As good as best beaches, with turquoise and calm water. Go before 10:30 to profit of a desert place. Great place to chill out !

Fraser Island has been one of the most beautiful trip in Australia, you go from the ocean to the wild forest to such a beautiful lake, it looks like Caribbeans with white sand all around, absolutely stunning I would totally recommend it.

Amazing to walk through the forest & find a lake with such fine white sand & such clear water. Water was fresh in July but still OK to swim. If you're a keen swimmer, take your goggles & swim across. Beautiful, peaceful place. A must visit.

wow- Very pretty place. The water was cool in July but plenty of people still went in for a swim. The sand is so soft and water so blue.
