In lieu of the Blue Lake walk, we headed down the road and aimed for Rainbow Lake, an easier and more sheltered stroll. It turned out to be a lovely walk with the meadows laden with summer wildflowers. Purples, yellows, reds and whites were scattered in abundance wherever one looked, though at times, because they were so delicate, you had to strain to notice them in the tufted heath.
The lake isn?t visible until the final 100 metres and it was a surprise to see a wharf in sorry state of disrepair jutting into the western side though the lake was is man made, having been utilized in the days when the Hotel Kosciusko used it for water.
