All about the 2 Day Fraser Island Explorer Tour

The best bit about Fraser Island is Lake McKenzie is the most famous of all of the Fraser Island attractions, notable for its size, its crystal clear fresh water, the surrounding pure white sand.
The water is a stunning vivid blue, and the pure-silica sand is soft underfoot. The sand is so fine it is ideal for skin exfoliation. Grab a handful and give yourself a little spa treatment.
The water is slightly acidic from decaying plants this limits the viability of aquatic life but in no way affects the pleasure of a well-earned swim.
