Mr Moroney discovered the beautiful natural phenomenon when he decided to take some photos of Cakora Lake after a storm had passed last July.

‘From the ground it just looks looks like any normal lake and I didn’t think much of it,’ Mr Moroney told Daily Mail Australia.

When the photographer looked over at the images he took, he was stunned. 

‘I was in complete awe at what mother nature had created and that so many people didn’t get to see it,’ said Mr Moroney. 

‘The picture was taken at 119m altitude so it would be impossible for anyone not in a plane to see it.’

The incredible sight is caused by tea tree oil settling in the natural pathways of the lake after a storm. 

The lake is connected to a beach and estuary which is covered with tea trees, Mr Moroney explained.  

When a storm fills the lake up and the water reaches the beach, tides push the water and the oil back.
