Create an itinerary including The Blue Lake
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.

  • It is an impressive crater lake with average depth of 70 metre. It has a number of good viewing points and the parks and area around are well done.
