A weekend in Mount Gambier

The weekend before heading to Tasmania we stayed in Mount Gambier, South Australia. Jude’s mum Ess was born there and we actually arrived on what would have been her 94th birthday. The next day was Mother’s Day.  We immediately went to The Blue Lake which Ess spoke so fondly about for so many years. It is beautiful and we can fully appreciate why she loved it so much. Happy birthday mum!

We watched the most amazing documentary called Volcano which showed the incredible story of the eight major eruptions that created Mount Gambier. This is how the Blue Lake and other smaller lakes were formed. Check out the link to a preview – https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iy93M5w5qV0
