“How fantastic a bright blue lake.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

I was told about the lake' water being blue, but I never expected it to be so vivid. January and February is suppose to be a great time to see this. There is a footpath that goes all around the lake, so you can marvel at the spectacle whilst keeping fit.

What an amazing lake, the colour is fantastic. We walked around the lake on the rim footpath and enjoyed the views. This is a real must.

“As blue as blue can be!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Stopped here briefly on the way out of town. The water if remarkably blue, almost beyond belief. Worth a look.

Bring a jacket if weather has any hint of wind and weather. It was freezing when we stopped in for a look (mainly wind chill).

“Worth Seeing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

It was worth going to Mt Gambier to see the lakes but what is that terrrible eyesore near it on the hill. Looks like an old hospital maybe. Council ought to demolish it as it detracts from the whole sigtseeing experience.
