I knew I was near the end of the walk when I sighted the concrete top of Lake Repulse Dam.
I continued walking until the single-lane bridge over the Derwent River came into view.
I expected little traffic in this area so I walked onto the bridge for a good look down towards Cluny Lagoon and then upstream towards the Dam wall and the water being disgorged at its base.
Future postings will contain the detail and show photos of my walk through the bush along the top right of the dam wall as I headed inland around Lake Repulse Dam towards Catagunya Dam.
When I was standing close to the dam wall, I was able to look back to the wooden bridge.
I felt privileged to see this wooden bridge which must be one of the few left around Tasmania. I imagine that in not too many years’ time, a ‘modern’ metal one will replace it. Meanwhile this sturdy piece of engineering is a very attractive find located not so far from the Lyell Highway.
