Fraser Island - Fun at Lake Mackenzie
Probably one of the most visited natural attractions on Fraser Island, Lake Mackenzie is what's called a "perched lake". The lake does not feed to the ocean and is not fed by streams or ground water, it contains only rainwater. The sand and organic matter on the bed of the lake form an impervious layer that prevents the water from draining away. As the lake is so pure due to the fine white sand acting as a filter, it supports very little life and is almost crystal clear, resulting in amazing hues of green and blue. The lake has some great camping amenities including campfires (with wood provided), toilets and showers.
