It is a 4 and a half hour drive from Adelaide and the must see attractions are the cave gardens, the Blue Lake, the Little Blue Lake. The Little Blue Lake is not very famous, but the locals like to go there to swim and go experience in summer.
Mount Gambier is a city, not a mountain. It is the second largest city in South Australia. It is located on the slope of an extinct volcano.
There are special cave gardens, cultural heritage buildings, and craters. The city is clean and tidy, the houses are beautiful, there are some period buildings and restaurants.
The blue lake and valley lake are lakes produced by volcanoes. One is blue and the other is green. They are very beautiful.
The crater on the top of Mount Schank is a very big cave. There is a path along the top to go around. I walked for about half an hour. The crater is already covered with green plants, but there is volcanic ash next to it. It is a very special one. view. Looking down from the top of the mountain, there are pastures all around, and flocks of cattle and sheep are equally beautiful.
Mount Gambier is an extinct volcano, forming a volcanic lake on the crater. There were four volcanic lakes in Gambier, two of which disappeared due to drying up. The water source of the Blue Lake is composed of rainwater and groundwater. The vibrant and clean water quality has become the water supply for the locals.
There is a large revolving viewing platform by the lake, which can enjoy the panoramic view of the Blue Lake and the appearance of the town of Gambier. And strolling on the 3.6 kilometers of sightseeing roads around, the scenery along the way is also very intoxicating and unique.
The Blue Lake is very close to the urban area of Mount Gambier. It is a lake formed by a volcanic eruption. It has a fascinating blue color due to its special mineral composition. If you pass by this place, it is a beautiful sight not to be missed. The kind of blue is blue like a sapphire, very beautiful and unforgettable for life.
Blue Lake is a volcanic lake. It is on the crater of an extinct volcano. The lake has an average depth of 72 meters and the deepest point is 75 meters. The bottom of the lake is flat. The length and width of the crater are 1200 meters and 824 meters, and the length and width of the lake are 1087 meters and 657 meters. The magic of the Blue Lake is that from December to March every year, the lake will show a vibrant cobalt blue; after April, it will gradually turn back to a cool iron gray until the next December. We were lucky to see its most beautiful appearance, and sighed that the blue lake is simply a sapphire blue lake inlaid on the earth.
