The Blue Lake, Mount Gambier
(4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Take your time to walk around cobalt blue The Blue Lake, located in an extinct volcanic crater. You will be rewarded with spectacular view of the lake from various aspects. The lake color ranges from shimmering blue in summer to steely gray in winter. The color changes are most likely due to calcite crystals in the water. Take the glass-paneled elevator down to access the lake, where you can picnic or hang out at the RV park. Using our custom trip planner, Mount Gambier attractions like The Blue Lake can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
