After leaving the Serpentine Dam we continued along Gordon Rover Road to the end of the road, where we came to the Gordon Dam.
Lake Gordon, created by the dam, was still shrouded in fog so it was impossible to see how big it was, but we could see the dam wall itself, which is pretty impressive.
Completed in 1974, it’s 140 metres high and is the highest arch dam and the largest storage dam in Australia.
It’s curved both horizontally and vertically, which allowed them to use less concrete in construction, reducing the overall cost. The dual arch explains why it doesn’t look straight. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me!
