There you can grab a coffee and chocolate croissant (own cost) for morning tea. From here is when the big adventure begins as we drive to the famous Lake McKenzie...arguably the most popular and picturesque highlight of Fraser!

Around 3pm we drive up the beach to our campsite, for an early dinner and some well-deserved drinks and fun!
