Donnolly Weir was built in 1890 for less than £1,000 it is used to supplement water collected in Maroondah Reservoir but as Maroondah Dam has been spilling continuously for almost a year now its waters have not been needed. In fact last time I visited there was so much water coming over it that the rock and cascade featured in this shot were completely submerged.
The Weir is part of a park with toilets, information boards and a rotunda and is a pretty spot for a picnic. It is located just outside Healsville in the Yarra Valley.
