This lake is so beautiful, the colour amazing. The sand so white and fine - we all cleaned our jewellery in the sand!

Definitely worth the four wheel drive journey - which is an experience in itself. Crystal clear water, powder fine sand and unique ecological history. A must see.

Absolutely beautiful. Loved our visit and swim here. Lake McKenzie was the highlight of our trip. We visited in off peak season so it wasn't packed out.
