The Lake is Overflowing! - February 2017


Our lake is full and overflowing, which is a wonderful sight after two years of draught. In late 2015 about 150-180 megs fo water were pumped out of our lake and during the 2016 wet-season we had no inflow into our big lake at all, so by late 2016 it looked rather "empty".
We were thrilled to see that a single good rainfall event this year filled the lake up rather quick. It took less than a week for the lake to rise by 3.5 or 4 meters and to start overflowing! Considering that Lake Tinaroo, the areas main dam only went from 1/3 to 1/2 we are counting ourselves blessed.

And it creates such a nice feeling being in our new marquee which is now right on the waters edge...
