“Azure Lake”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

It was a cloudy day when toured the Blue Lake and surrounding parklands and we were only afforded small glimpses of the brilliant blue lake as the clouds rolled overhead. This is a very pretty location and is the Town’s water source. There is a driving route that takes you to the Valley Lake Lookout, onto Brownes Lake and BBQ area and then circles around to the Wildlife Park. Entry to this area is free with a donation box inside the gate. We were lucky to see some Kangaroos and an Echidna foraging around in the late afternoon. It was a pleasant relaxing afternoon and room for kids to run around in the playground.

“Wow! So beautiful”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

I loved Blue Lake. It is so pretty but apparently the best time to see it is in Dec, Jan and Feb. But the Lake was still very Blue in March. We went on a tour of the pump station. It was pretty good and informative. There is also a glass lift that takes you down a old well/shaft. That was pretty cool.

“Blue Lake is Blue!”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

When you hear about the blue lake youre expecting it to be blue, but not bright vibrant blue, its really a place you have to see with your own eyes. Its actually a very beautiful lake.

“Amazing colours”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

Nature at it's most beautiful. Serene setting and fab children's playground in the park itself. Kids will play for hours.

“Really blue!”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

A really blue lake - we didnt go down and take the tour - dont know how much it was but didnt really want to spend on more attractions. From what I know the tour takes you down to the surface of the lake and if you go at a certain time they will fire off a water cannon that forms a rainbow - thats the tour that I would go on.
We drove around the whole lake - not really worth it since you really cant see much of the lake.
Its just such a beautiful site - so well worth the visit
