Driving along the Federal Highway, about 40 km from Canberra (Australia), you will come across a wide stretch of land. Afar the mountain range appears to be drenched in hues of blue, and along it runs a lake about 25 km in width.
I was told that about 20 years ago the water from Lake George would reach the Highway, the spot from where these pictures were taken. I am baffled how so much of water body is lost over a period of time.
Said to be about a million years old, George Lake is a closed lake. There’s no outflow to river or sea. The water fluctuates during the monsoons and there have been times when it was full, but the water subsides just as quickly.
According to legends, the water is believed to seep into another world. Now that must be a fascinating story. I need to find out where that came from 🙂

Don’t forget to check out the stunning Tulip Top Gardens nearby 🙂
