White Sandy Beach & Crystal Clear Water

Great place for a swim, the water is very clear , not to far to walk from car park to lake shore. Only problem is the amount of people there, very busy.

Great Lake, used to be amazing when you could have the whole lake to yourself now it is always so busy it loses its appeal

One of most spectacular places in the country! Very serene and picturesque. Water was crystal clear and surrounds were spotless.

Lake Mackenzie is the most beautiful place in the world. With pristine clean water, white sand and a short walk from the carpark it is well worthwhile to visit, There is nothing quite like it that I have seen in my lifetime.

Definitely worth the four wheel drive journey - which is an experience in itself. Crystal clear water, powder fine sand and unique ecological history. A must see.
