- Lake McKenzie – Australia
Lake McKenzie is a lake on Fraser Island, an island off the east coast of Australia.

The Dead Sea is gigantic, an area of no less than 1020 km². What is so special is that you keep floating on the water. This has to do with the high concentration of minerals in the water (which is also very good for your skin) Certainly do: rub yourself with mud from the Dead Sea and float around on the salt water.
