Crystal Clear Seasonal Lake in Australia

I just came across one of those unique wonders of nature that begs to be shared!

Seasonal Lake

The Country Park that Turns into its own lake for 2 months every year due to melting glaciers. The lake is a well known hiking and diving destination in Tragoess, Steiermark ( Austria ). Water levels are differing strongly during the year. In spring the lake is filling with water from underground springs, coming from melting snow from the surrounding mountains. The region being a karst type, there is no surface river carrying sediments into the lake. All the water is coming from little springs and is crystal clear, but extremely cold. Water levels are rising from, maybe 1 or 2 m in winter to 8 or 10 m in early june. During a period of several weeks, starting from may to end of june, depending on the weather, diving there is great!
