Fraser Island - Lake McKenzie

As we approached the Lake the tour guide said, perhaps you have seen postcards of a beautiful blue lake fringed with white sands.  It's not like that at the moment.  We've had so much rain over the past few months the water level is high and covering the sand and runnoff and vegetation has tainted the crystal clear water to a murky green.

And so our day ended with disappointment.  Here is what I hoped to see 

And in case you are wondering, we didn't see any dingos (native dogs) either.  After one of them killed a child some years ago they were extensively culled so sightings are more rare these days.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
