Little Blue Lake is on northeast Tasmania on Gladstone Road. It is on the way to Mt. William National Park. The lake is a result of alluvial tin mining. It was made a recreational spot when miners were through and the pit they left was filled with water. The water is highly toxic from heavy metals, but the shore is used for parties and camping. It is popular for gem hunters - smoky quartz, amethyst, and topaz can be found.
