Did you know that Lake George was once a proposed site for Canberra?

When the people came to “observe” it, the water had vanished, as had their Venice type plan for our capital.

Lake George. For what its worth:

1. It used to be way bigger. During the Pleistocene water used to flow over Geary’s Gap.

2.The Raised ridge at the northern end, that the present road follows is actually an aeolian dune that has built up over millions of years.

3. The grid of drainage ditches on the western side of the Highway at the northern end were dug by convicts in the 1830s (or there abouts) and still perform the task they were built for.

i was driving pastlake george about 9pm coming back from sydney. i was changing lanes from the outer lane to the inner lane when all of a sudden a car out off no where was right up the back off me berping his horn. I slowed down to look out my rear mirror so i could get there number plate and it was’nt there, it had completely vanished.I was shocked, and did’nt know what to think. So some advice from me, try not to travel at night or in wet weather past there.
