“Do NOT use sun lotion or repellent if coming into the water - Polution!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Swimming in Lake McKenzie was clearly our highlight in Fraser Island.

We read on the information boards that using sun lotion or insect repellents are not allowed, because it will pollute the lake and as the lake is a closed system, the pollution will stay very long in the lake. We washed out and rubbed away all our sun lotion before we went into the lake.

I talked with several people and all of them did not know that, because most of the people do not read the information boards.

To protect the beautiful lake I would suggest to NOT to use sun lotion or repellents if one is coming in touch with the water.

“Beautiful”

This lake is beautiful and well worth the trip over. It can be busy at times but if you are lucky and you get there at the right time it is stunning.
