For any eagle eyed readers of my blog, you may have noticed a slight resemblance between Lake Mckenzie and Whitehaven beach that I blogged about here in my Whitsundays post. The sand on this beach is the same sand that makes Whitehaven so unique. I was under the impression that Whitehaven was the only beach to have this 98% silica beneath my feet, but here I am standing on it once again!IMG_7748

The depth increases rather quickly in this lake, the reason for the change in colour seen in the images above and below.

I really cannot get over how clear the water is in Australia…

      1. Haha well I have learned that in the UK we are led to believe anything will kill you at any time in Australia, but living here has made me relax a little more. But even back home I am skeptical about putting my feet in the water, I think I just have a phobia of large bodies of water…

    1. And the best thing is, this sand never heats up in summer! It stays cool no matter the temperature, so none of that running as fast as you can to the water πŸ™‚

      1. That would be a cool sight! Sadly a dead whale washed up on the beach and our guide told us that the dingoes would start eating it soon…

    1. It is definitely a place I would recommend. I believe Prince Harry and Megan are going to go there whilst visiting visit Fraser Island, so I expect to see plenty of pictures in the media from here. I hope you visit soon!
