The Top Dam

At the top of the property, up a track a goat would find difficult, there is The Top Dam.  There has been no mention of this dam in any of the real estate blurb, and we only found out about it because the owner turned up while we were there and told us.  After one false start we found the road and tentatively drove the (hire – oops!) car into the forest.  At the top of the goat track, the view was somewhat uninspiring – a grass and sag covered bank loomed up from the paddock, obscuring any glimpse of the dam or anything beyond.  Leaving my camera in the car I debated whether to climb to the top of the bund or not but as Clint had already marched to the top I decided I should as well.  This is the view that greeted me when I crested the hill.

The Top Dam

I was speechless – a wonderful, secluded, peaceful place with the added bonus of supplying the garden with all the water it could need.  This was the icing on the cake for us – once we had seen this we couldn’t go back!

    • Absolutely! There are trout apparently – but better watch out for the platypus

  2. At what size does a dam become a lake? That is huge! Very picturesque 🙂
