Fraser Island | Lake McKenzie August 12 2019, 0 Comments
We recently visited Fraser Island - the largest sand island in the world and an eco-wonderland! So much natural beauty preserved. We absolutely loved our recent stay and explored so many beautiful spots around the island.
Lake McKenzie was a standout. What a spectacular place! Soft, fine, white silica sand and crystal clear water. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Lake McKenzie is one of the most visited natural sites on Fraser Island. It is a “perched” lake which means it contains only rainwater, no groundwater, is not fed by streams and does not flow to the ocean. The sand and organic matter at the base of the lake form an impervious layer, preventing rainwater from draining away. As the sand here is pure, white silica and is not only beautiful to look at but feels beautifully soft to walk on. The sand acts as a filter, giving the water its clarity and helping to make the water so pure it can support very little life.*
Lake McKenzie's incredibly pure waters are ideal for swimming in. Not only are there no creatures to dodge, but the soft sand underfoot makes it an incredibly peaceful & exhilarating experience – and works wonders on the skin. My daughter wore her favourite Navy beach robe and my son wore his Duck Egg/Turquoise beach robe - both pictured here. The entire product range can be browsed here.
The shades of blues, greens & turquoise of the lake are mesmerising and endlessly fascinating. Well worth a visit! Add it to your bucket list today.
