Features of Lake McKenzie Fraser Island
Lake McKenzie Fraser Island is a perched lake which sits above sea level on a sealed base formed from sand and organic matter. Lake McKenzie contains only rainwater.
Lake McKenzie is a large lake with a water depth of around 5 meters. It is surrounded by vegetation but has this beautiful shoreline with pure white silica sand.
This sand is very soft to walk on. The sand filters the rainwater which makes the lake super clear. That’s why Lake McKenzie and Lake Birrabeen are known as the two clear lakes on Fraser Island.
The pure white sand, the crystal clear fresh water and the overall pristine nature of Lake McKenzie cannot be fully appreciated until you see it for yourself.
As someone once said, “You cannot claim to be a world traveler until you have set foot on Lake McKenzie.”
