"Visit Green Lake - either with or without water!!!" Horsham Things to Do Tip by lindyz
Horsham Things to Do: 2 reviews and 10 photos
In the entire 20 years I grew up in Horsham, Green Lake ALWAYS had water in it and it was a favourite summer escape from the heat. I was devastated when for the last 20 years or so, it has been dry as a bone, due to the intense drought suffered in the Wimmera area for many years. It was always very eerie indeed to drive past it and see it bare .... not a drop of water in it. I was even told that the farmers had started to plant crops in it!!!
Well ... the Wimmera region and Horsham has experienced good rainfalls recently and when we drove past Green Lake heading towards Horsham ... Jen and I let out a HUGE gasp as Green Lake was half full!!! I realise to those of you reading this who did NOT grow up in Horsham, you probably see no connection with this tip ... BUT to those of you who DID grow up in Horsham ... well you will well and truly be familiar with the connection to the Lake.
Just a few pics of Green Lake in June - dry as a bone and then pics taken in September where it is half full.
Address: About 10kms from Horsham on Western Highway
