Sunrise at Lake Mulwala, Yarrawonga
Updated: Feb 9, 2020
Over the Labour day weekend end I shot the sunrises over Lake Mulwala at Yarrwonga about 2.5 hours from Melbourne. The trees in the lake remind me of fingers reaching out of the water. The mornings are so peaceful and quiet on the lake compared to all the water sport activities that are happening during the day. It is nice to just take in the peace and quiet and enjoy the scenery.
It is a man–made reservoir created through the construction of the Yarrawonga Weir across the Murray River, it is located between Bundalong and Yarrawonga in the Hume region of Victoria and Mulwala in the Riverina region of New South Wales, in eastern Australia.
The weir was constructed in 1939 to provide water for irrigation of the surrounding district. The weir also serves as a crossing of the Murray between the two towns; in addition to the crossing located via the Mulwala Bridge.
