The Blue Lake, Mount Gambier

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. Plan trip to Mount Gambier with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • Really blue. You can walk around different vantage points and there is places to walk around in lush green nature. Real breath of fresh air. All the pictures I took where on the same day an hour in between. As the sun came out it became a more beautiful blue. I specifically drove from Melbourne. No regrets.
  • Incredible Blue, have to see it to appreciate it. Most do if visiting Mt Gambier. Highly Recommended.
