Lake Daylesford redeveloped

The monumental Lake Daylesford reconstruction appears to have reached the landscaping phase.

“Just how safe is it?” is the hot topic of discussion amongst locals who witnessed the massive earthworks. Has this new removal of rock actually weakened the overall integrity of the dam wall?

As the waves reach the overflow steps, water gushes over, sounding like a grandiose backyard water feature.

Unfortunately, the obsession with concrete in this venture has led to the creation of a monstrosity along the spillway. Surely this piece of new brutalism is unnecessary – and it is certainly out of place. The landscape geniuses will have to work overtime to hide this structure, rather similar to a wall in the West Bank.
