Fraser Island, Lake Mc Kenzie

Fraser Island, Lake Mc Kenzie - feature photo

This is Lake Mc Kenzie and was defiantly the best part of Fraser Island to me. It had crystal clear blue water and white silicon sand, it has an area of over 150 hectares and is about 5m deep. It is sat on a gigantic sand dune. The sand is actually silicon which makes this strange squeaking noise when you walk on it. Its very very fine and makes a perfect exfoliator to get all your dead skin off… nice. You wouldn’t think so from the photo but Lake McKenzie is actually 100m AMSL, above mean sea level, I only learned this when learning to skydive 😉

Well actually the whole island is a sand dune so to speak. It’s the biggest sand island in the world about 260m high. Being made completely from sand Fraser Island actually moves 1-2m a year!

Fraser Island if I remember correctly is known by the Aboriginals as K’Gari which means paradise and was inscripted by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1992.

Fraser Island is easy to get to and is only a couple of hours drive from Brisbane you can hire out 4x4s out there, but heard many horror stories about cars getting stuck and arguments from hell. Hence decided to take a Fraser Island tour with Dingos which was excellent, no sleeping bags, no cooking, no tents and no driving, just relaxing and downing some VB and the best part of this you dont get your food eaten by dingos!

  7. If this is the same lake that I swam in, I think there are a few lakes on Frazer Island, then there were lots of very small turtles. Made a new experience for me – Swimming With Turtles.

    Frazer Island is an amazing place.

  9. I did the same tour, and absolutely loved it. Fraser Island was by far one of the most memorable parts of my trip to OZ. We saw dingos, but from the comfort of the tour bus. It was such good fun bumping around on the sand roads though. Loved Lake McKenzie, could have stayed there all day
