Blue Lake represents one of Australia’s most iconic and picturesque state parks located in Mt Gambier, South Australia; It is surrounded by a 3.6-kilometer access road and pathway and is a popular walking and running track for locals and tourists who enjoy the magnificent sights and views.

Over the years, the local council has had concerns that the full benefits of the Lake are not fully utilized due to the lack of lighting preventing usage of the park in the evening and limiting access to what is a ‘world class’ natural attraction.


City of Mount Gambier’s dilemma was the difficulty in providing reticulated powered lighting requiring underground electrical cabling throughout a heavily populated volcanic rock area, additionally, the environmental disruption that would be caused by extensive excavation works would also significantly impact the natural vegetation and wildlife of the park. After much consultation, the council decided the most practical & viable solution would be to install a solar-powered lighting solution.

Our Solution:

After an extensive tendering process, Leadsun Australia‘s range of AE2 series solar LED street lights was ultimately specified for the solar lighting project due to its proven system reliability, compact appearance, and cost-efficiency. A total of 92 systems were strategically installed around the lake providing sufficient and comfortable lighting levels throughout the entire 3.6Km pathway circuit.

Each system consists of a 40W ‘All-In-One’ Solar Engine that uses a ‘plug & play’ cable to connect the system to attach to an ‘asymmetrical’ LED light head that concentrates all lighting onto the pathway whilst minimizing spill light at the front and rear of the fitting. The solar LED street lighting systems were also installed on a lowerable pole system that allowed all installation works to be carried out quickly and safely at ground level without the use of any elevated work platforms. Additionally, the complete lighting system features Leadsun’s unique and technically advanced ‘wireless system’ that allows all systems to be easily programmed to a specific working mode operation.
