At the lower edge of my aerial photo below sits the Clark Dam with Lake King William backed up behind. The photo also shows clearly the road/track to be taken westwards to walk along the edge of the Lake.
Behind the massive curved wall of Clark Dam sits millions of tonnes of water in a glorious expanse that extends over 15 kilometres northwestwards.
At the boat ramp, a sign provides information for visitors.
The water level of the Lake is extremely low.
I loved the silver grey driftwood on the rocky shore and imagined the creation of rustic furniture. That might become my next project.
The views across the Lake were sensational.
I should have chosen a panoramic photo option. Fortunately my chauffeur and companion walker Andrew did take such a stunning shot.
While there was no-one else around during our visit, this fireplace was an obvious sign of past visitors.
I expect to walk the length of Lake King William solo before Christmas: 15 km ‘as the crow flies’, and possibly 30 kms to walk at ground level. Before I reach the Lyell Highway way up in a north westerly direction, the Derwent River will empty into Lake King William.
When I flew up the Derwent River, and when Lake King William came into view, it was clearly a massive stretch of water. See Michelle’s photos below.
