Lake Eucumbene near Old Adaminaby, Snowy Mountains, NSW, Australia.

Taken with Canon EOS550D. 18-55 EFS Lens.

553 Views – May 2013.

The town of Adaminaby was on the site proposed for the dam. Most of the buildings in the town relocated to a site on the Snowy Mountains Highway, but some buildings were not flooded and remain at Old Adaminaby which, along with Anglers Reach is a popular destination for fishing holidays for introduced trout. Eucumbene is one of the premier trout fishing lakes in New South Wales.
