I reckon it’ll be full by the end of the month.

I don’t recognise the landscape…

Which vantage point is that?

If those are the windmills visible through the mist on the left, then it’s from the Federal Hwy, on the Collector end.

Great pics, thank you both. We’ve been wondering how Lake George is looking.

Looks a bit higher up to me, probably on Marked Tree Road. There’s some great vantage points up there. It is dirt/gravel but I’ve managed to negotiate it a few times in my nippy hatchback on low profile tyres. And if you start at the northern end (ie. roughly where that pic was taken) and keep going you end up in Gundaroo so you can enjoy a meal at Grazing before going back to Canberra.

Yeah, when I had another look I realised the Fed. must be underneath the photographer’s spot. Possibly up on the winery, or as you say, Marked Tree Rd.

It was chockers when we first got posted to Canberra, early 2000. The water was lapping the drainage ditches alongside the highway. It was a spectacular sight!

If only they would dig the bugger down another 100m and fill it with Cod, trout and Yellowbelly, it would make a great tourist attraction!

If you can source a few nukes we can give it a whirl……..

I’ve heard rumours of the lake back in the day and have always wanted to see it flooded.

I’ve heard rumours that Lake George is connected through subterranean channels with some lake in China. Anyone got any pics of the Chinese lake, presumably it’s drying up right about now?

I am sure the Greens have got one.

No, no, no!

It’s a lake in New Zealand :)

Let’s limit the fish stocking to native varieties please. No trout.
