Absolutely breathtaking. Pure white sand leading into a freshwater lake. A turquoise hue before a deep blue is just stunning. Even on a rainy day it was well worth the trip. Went twice to the lake on a 4 day trip.

Easy drive from Kingfisher Resort for Christmas Lunch. Family enjoyed a beautiful and relaxing swim before enjoying lunch in the cage. Kids thought it was great for us to be fenced off instead of the animals. Saw dingos and a huge goanna.

If you have limited time to spend on Fraser Island, do not waste time, go direct to Lake McKenzie. Fine white sands soaked in clear fresh water, super refreshing on a hot summer day.

Sorry for late reply! The tracks are great fun but quite challenging in places. Personally I was only comfortable on the firmer sections, but other people coped fine with soft shifting sand. We went as a tag along tour so... More
