A natural stop off point after coming out of The Grampians, Mount Gambier is home to the Blue Lake. Big wow we thought a blue lake..."whoop-de-doo basil".
"He's messed around with those photo's in photoshop" you're probably thinking, well no I haven't, it really is that blue and that vivid - it looks like the locals are tipping in massive amounts of blue paint into an old volcano crater. Quite amazing.
The region is scattered with extinct/dormant volcanos and also sink holes - large holes in the ground where the earths caved in. Many of these were turned into sunken gardens during the late 18th/early 19th century and are now attractions for the area.
