Unlike the wet countries that most of my blogging mates live in, Australia is not really known for its lakes. Unless you live in Tasmania or in the outback after a flood. A large percentage of lakes in Australia are really man made (thanks Joanne) reservoirs. Here is a small selection.
Lake Bellfield, Grampians, Victoria
Mitchell River Mouth at Lake King; Estuarine lake, Gippsland, Victoria
Lake Argyle, Ord River, Western Australia
Lake Eucembeme, Snowy Mountains, New South Wales
Lake Tarli Karng, natural lake in the Victorian Alps
Lake Tarli Karng
Lake Eildon in the late 1960s. Overflowing, which it rarely does now.
