Little Blue Lake (South Mt Cameron)

Little Blue Lake, just meters off the B82 between Derby and Gladstone, is a beautiful little lake which, as its name suggests, has a vivid aqua blue colour. The hue results from the minerals in its base, left from the pioneering mining days of the surrounding areas. The lake is popular with the locals for waterskiing, but swimming is not recommended due to the high mineral content in the water.
