I have now visited this location several times and each time it is as before, perfect. The access has changed and the area to relax has been altered but it is worth the walk. Take a kayak or similar and explore further afield.

Beautiful and relaxing as long as you beat the tourist buses. We arrived 1pm and I mananged to get several photos of the gorgeous lake without any people in my pics.

Remote idyllic location, pristine environment, softest fine sand beach and clearest of blue water. We could have stayed here forever. Everyone told us that Lake Mackenzie was a must-see and we were not disappointed. A place to dissipate all your cares and experience total relaxation.

This was the last stop of our organised tour on Fraser Island where we stopped for a swim. The beach was soft white sand which lead into the warm waters of Lake McKenzie. The sand gives a great exfoliating experience to the skin so well worth a dip. There are changing facilities at the lake as well as an enclosed... More
