It is located in the shire of Allanson. The  stunning azure colours are from the limestone in the water, which are at their showiest on a sunny day. It’s a bit of a diva lake.Black Diamond Lake, AllansonThere is plenty of parking and overflow onto the street. There were a few caravans parked up on the flatter surfaces and many campervans.
