Little Blue Lake

The first thing that grabs your attention is the lakes exquisite aqua blue colour.

 

The aqua colour is made all the more impressive due to the contrasting sandstone coloured cliffs surrounding it, which makes the colour truly pop.

 

The area surrounding the lake is no slouch either. Beautiful mountains backdrop the lake and Australian bushlands surround the area and help highlight the lakes unnatural colour.

 

The lake was created when tin mining operations removed tonnes of material from the area, thereby forming depressions which later filled with water and formed the lake.
