Great place to spend a few hours swimming and relaxing. I've been here in times of lots of other tourists visiting but also when being the only visitors which is fantastic. The silica sand is great for making your skin smooth and soft by applying it wet on your body. There's also a secondary beach on the left of the... More

If you only have time to visit one lake, Lake McKenzie is the pick....no need to see any others as they just don't compare.

Lake McKenzie was such a beautiful place to visit! The lake is incredible. The water is so beautiful and crystal clear, and the white sand was gorgeous. It is definitely a must see when visiting Fraser Island!

Lake McKenzie is definitely the main attraction on Fraser. Even though it is quite crowded (even in off-peak season) it is definitely a must see! I wish I had a snorkel while I was there though.

This Lake is a must see. Fantastic to refresh on a hot day, or just lay back on the whitest sand you will ever see. The water is crystal clear and the shallows are great for even the youngest swimmer to enjoy. Toilets and change rooms are available and a viewing platform is provided for photo opportunities.

Honestly words do not do it justince - the sand was so white, and the water was spectacular - clear and deep blue - it was a little chilly but we got in anyway! had a swim, took selfies and took a walk - so lovely! the choppy drive through the forest was fun too!
