“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

So long as it is a sunny day, you will love Lake McKenzie. Best time to view the water is in the early afternoon

“Beautiful....but very cold!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Very picturesque and well set up with changing facilities for those who braved the water. Our kids waded in and loved the beautiful sand and the clean, clear water but it was pretty chilly!

“Best lake in Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Crystal clear rain fed lake with white soft sand, still the same as I remember over 10 years ago. Fenced off area for eating to discourage dingoes from scavenging.

“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Remarkable scenery - amazingly clear water, lovely reflection of trees and sky in the water. It was an extremely busy place with bus loads of tourists and 4 wheel drives. An enclosure has been made for people to eat safely away from the dingoes and there were plenty of clean toilet facilities.
