Seventy Five Mile Beach on Fraser Island. As the name suggests, its 75 miles long. It is a sand highway and despite it not having any road markings or dividers like regular roads, you still have to abide by the rules of the road and functions under the same laws as any other highways in Queensland.

What largely look likes a dead tree sprouting new green shoots from the base.

Sitting on the shallow white sandy beach of Lake Mackenzie. The sand around Lake McKenzie is pure silica, giving the beach a shimmering white color.

Relaxed and chilled. 


Surrounded by rainforest and only five metres deep at its deepest point and spanning 130 hectares, Lake Mckenzie’s mass is made up completely of rainwater, with no springs or water sources running in or out of it and is therefore susceptable to pollutants from tourists (soap, suncream etc.). High acidity prevents plants or fish life from flourishing there, making its shores weed free.


Answers on a postcard as to what I was taking a photo of.
