ABOUT THE ART
Blue Lake – South Australia
The Blue Lake is a source of water supply for the city of Mt.Gambier and is just one of three lakes within three craters of extinct volcanoes. Blue lake is almost fully circular and until recently (mid 80s) it was never known what it’s full depth was; It is believed to be approximately 400 metres deep.
Each year in November, it mysteriously starts its colour change to the unbelievable turquoise blue. From March each year it gradually makes the change back to its more sombre winter blue which is still a magnificent sight.
Over a period of thousands of years numerous caves have formed in the limestone. Through continuous dissolution and weakening of the upper layers, sinkholes have been formed as the top of the cave falls inwards.
