Nigothoruk Creek is the feeder creek for the only naturally occuring lake in the Victorian Alps, Lake Tali Karng. When this shot was taken (November 08) there had been heavy rains on the Wellington Plains above the lake, which is headwater area for the creek. According to the Parks Victoria website: “The lake is believed to have been formed about 1500 years ago when a massive rock slide collapsed into the valley damming the waters of Nigothoruk Creek and what is now known as the Wellington River. The water runs underground from the lake to emerge as the infant Wellington River 150m below in the Valley of Destruction.”
