The photo below is of the Little Blue Lake which is located in the north eastern area near Gladstone, Tasmania. Photo taken by youngest son as we have never been there, a place to visit in the future. We have been to Gladstone some years ago.
Son left home here at 8.30am and arrived back home at 2.35pm, so it took a fair while to travel in and around that area and back home.
The lake is called Blue Lake due to the minerals it has in it.
