Lake McKensie

Absolutely stunning. The sand is so white and the clearest water you will ever swim in. Such a peaceful spot.

One of the highlights of a trip to Fraser Island has to be a swim in Lake Mackenzie. Beautiful fresh water and a huge inland lake available for all to enjoy. Pack a lunch (to enjoy inside the dingo proof fence!) and make a day of it. Not much shade on the beach so an umbrella or cover recommended.

Lake McKenzie is a beautiful place where you can relax, take a swim and play around in the water. Already in the morning it's perfect to visit.

This lake purely made of rainwater is truly a great place to spend a few hours. The sand it so white that you need to have sunglasses on on a cloudy day too. The water is clear and shallow enough near the beaches for playing and chilling around. The lake is also a good place to take some underwater pictures.... More

Were there as one of the first visitors. Go there early in the morning before all the busses and coaches arrive. This lake is a real beauty. Stunning !

A welcome swim in this beautiful cool lake with surrounding white beach. Lazing on a towel or splashing around it's a great place to visit and take photos too.
