Lakes

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 Tarli Karng is really the only natural lake in this group. Lake King is a salt water inlet; one of the Gippsland Lakes. All of the others are man made reservoirs. There are other natural lakes throughout Australia, but the majority of them are dry except in flood periods. Prior to European settlement and more recently, climate change, more lakes were permanently full.
