Lakes in Australia

One of the things that make Australia beautiful is its collection of serene, translucent lakes. There are a number of types of lakes that can be found in Australia such as freshwater lakes, salt lakes, lagoons and coastal lakes, glacial lakes, and volcanic lakes.

Although natural freshwater lakes are rare in here, the ones that exist are truly breathtaking in their beauty.

Here are the freshwater lakes that are more than worth seeing if ever you decide to visit Australia: Blue Lake in New South Wales; Corella Lake in Northern Territory;

Dove Lake in Tasmania; Lake Batyo Catyo in Victoria; Lake Bryde-East Lake Bryde; Lake George in New South Wales; Lake Hindmarsh; Lake Magenta; Lake Miranda, South Australia; Lake Nuga Nuga; Lake St. Clair in Tasmania; Lake Sylvester in the Northern Territory;

There are only a few glacial lakes around Australia because of lack of glacial activity.


The glacial lakes are: Blue Lake; Club Lake; Headley Tarn; Lake Albina; and Lake Cootapatamba. Volcanic lakes are also only a handful compared to other types of lakes that abound in Australia because of the lack of tectonic activity in the land.


They are: Blue Lake in South Australia; Lake Barrine in Queensland; Lake Eacham and Lake Euramo, also both in Queensland; Little Blue Lake and Valley Lake, both in South Australia.

These are but mere unfamiliar names and words could never give justice to the beauty of these lakes. One has to see for himself what these beauties can do to soothe the tired soul.
