Simply stunning. Do not skip this on your Fraser Island trip! White sand, blue water, beautiful greenery and sun shining. Like a tropical beach on a lake. Toilet and shower facilities available but remember no food on the beach except for water. There are picnic facilities to prepare and eat your food.

Get there early if in peak season. Go prepared as everything on the Island is expensive, especially fuel.

This place is absolutely gorgeous. The water is so clear and warm its a dream! Be cautious with dingos on the beach and keep your food locked away and you will be just fine.

Gorgeous and cool. The sand is white and extremely fine, apparently you can clean your jewelry with it. We only spent an hour here for a quick dip, though a picnic lunch on the shores would be nice. No sunscreen in the water as it is a lake and can have an impact on the economy system. Worth the trip.

Nice place but full of bogans during school holidays, Lake Birrabeen is a lot quieter with bigger beach area and just as nice, if not better than Lake McKenzie

Lake Mackenzie is amazing and was one of the highlights of our Fraser Island holiday. Have never seen a lake so crystal clear you can see whats on the bottom at the waters edge before the water turns blue as it gets deeper. Only a short, easy walk down the track to the pristine white sand on the waters edge... More

Worth a visit as it is beautiful. We were there on overcast day and still loved it. The pure water is great for cleaning your jewelry

We adore this place. The clear water and soft white sand. It's a bit of a trek but it's worth it. We took our standup paddle board and that was just perfect.
