Visit Mount Gambier, South Australia, it’s a beautiful place. The town is surrounded by farmlands, pine trees, and of course it’s the home of the famous Blue Lake. It’s also not far from the coast, only about 20 minutes drive.
Apart from being a water source for the town, it’s also a favourite walking track for residents and visitors.
This beautiful lake is a vivid blue in the period from December to March. The change in colour happens quite quickly from around mid-November.. It is well worth a visit to see the change and the brilliant blue.
Please visit the site a1sites.com/mountgambier/blue_lake.html to find out more. Besides facts about the lake, you will find a section on ‘Is the Blue Lake really Blue’. The pictures clearly tell the story of the change in colour over the course of a normal year.
You will see quite a contrast between the blue lake and the valley lake which is in a beautiful park setting close by the blue lake. The Valley Lake is a favourite place for many families and friends to enjoy a barbecue or other outdoor activities, it’s great on a hot day because it has lots of shade and is noticeable cooler than other parts of the town. There is high point where you can stand and see both the blue lake and valley lake. The valley lake has more of a green tinge compared to the blue lake.
Another great place to visit while your there is Umpherstone sinkhole. You can find more details and pictures here at a1sites.com/mountgambier/umpherston.html
