MAROONDAH RESERVOIR

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
The Maroondah Dam is dam across the Watts River, located in the Central region of the Australian state of Victoria.

The storage created by the dam is called Maroondah Reservoir and supplies drinkable water for Greater Metropolitan Melbourne.

It took 8 years to construct the dam: from 1920 to 1928 among a eucalypt forest which has now become the Maroondah Reservoir Park with a large garden landscaped in an "English style”.

A walking track leads across the dam, over the spillway, and then up to the lookout from which much of the reservoir can be viewed.

The Maroondah Reservoir is about 71 km (44 miles) from Melbourne.
