Lake Mackenzie is extremely unique and very pretty. The paperbark trees lining the foreshore contrast against the very clear blue water due to the sandy bottom. If warm then a fantastic place to stop for a swim.

Fraser Island..If you are considering going, just do it! It is magical. We did a bus tour that stopped for x amount of time. Could have stayed all day here but our daughter loved just laying in the clear blue water and running around on the white white sand. Beautiful for photos. Treasured memories.

I recently went back to Fraser Island for the second time in 7 months just to see Lake Mckenzie again. The first time it looked green but the second were the most stunning blues ever. It was such a beautiful day weather wise with blue skies and no wind. I spent an hour and a half there swimming and relaxing.... More

Lake McKenzie is the most beautiful place at the island! The water is of great temperature and there are some great photo opportunities. I only wish our tour would have let us stay a few extra hours because I yjust couldnt get enough of that amazing view.

A local indigenous guide actually told us that they would never swim in this lake as it was a place of wisdom however it is fine to drink the water. shame there's no sign about either, as it would be nice to respect the culture of the local tribes people (Butchulla).

Part of the Beauty Spots 4WD tour but very cold water at this time of year. It would be fantastic in summer time.

Fraser Island is fantatic! Really the coolest place of the East Coast I found personally. But Lake McKenzie I thought was overrated. It definitely is nice, but not so special. Lake Wabby was nicer to me, I thought. But the white sand at Lake McKenzie is very special indeed. It's the same as on the Whithaven Beach on the Whitsunday... More
