There are no better words than picturesque and stunning to describe Fraser Island's most famous freshwater perched lake, Lake McKenzie. At the parking area I found an abundance of bush tucker including Midgem berry bushes loaded with edible berries as well as edible Dianella berries. A Lace monitor (Goanna) meandered through the scrub in the car park when we arrived whilst a Whistling kite circled overhead. The sand is one of the whitest I have ever seen and the water is crystal clear, which makes it perfect for spotting Fraser Island's native freshwater turtle species, the Fraser Island short-necked turtle and the rarer Fraser Island Broad-shelled turtle. Remember to bring your mask, snorkel and fins to explore the native wildlife underwater that includes many species of freshwater fish like the Purple spotted gudgeons and Ornate Rainbow fish as well as the freshwater turtles that inhabit the lake. A camera is essential when visiting Lake McKenzie.
