Fraser Island

                                The clear waters of Lake Mackenzie 

Measuring 120 Kilometers by 15 kilometers, Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world.  The beaches are picturesque but lethal. Undertows and numerous sharks make them unsafe for swimming but there are over forty crystal clear freshwater lakes and creeks for swimming.  Fraser Island is also home to around 150 of Australia's most purebred dingoes. We spent day three days on Fraser Island, seeing the sights and getting sandy.
