Yesterday’s rain in our catchment area, southwest of Sydney. A storm rolls in to add to an already healthy water level.
Taken from the Burragorang Lookout – if you ever need to escape the rat race for a few hours, head out to this spot – details below.
Exploration of the Burragorang Valley commenced in 1802 and the first bridle track followed to explorers’ trail. A zig Zag road up the mountain started as a track for horses and bullocks but later made a wagon road although it was very steep. The valley became a popluar tourist destination and featured many guesthouses. Completion of Warragamba Dam flooded the valley and residents were moved into the neighbouring towns. From Nattai township, the road leads to the Burragorang Lookout. From this point, visitors can enjoy the spectacular view of the valley, now Lake Burragorang.
Height above sea level: 500 metres.
