Lake Colac is almost dry - just a bit of water at the south end near Colac. And along the northern shoreline at Ondit there are thousands of dead European Carp. Of course they are a huge pest in our waterways so I don't mind them dying but it makes you wonder what else has died. We only notice the carp because they are so big. The boat ramp won't be used for a while.
Lake Cundare was also dry and because it's a saltier lake it was glistening in the sun. The whole area is a wetland of international significance! That's Mount Warrion in the background, yet another volcano on the volcanic plain.
OK, I've talked a fair bit about how dry the volcanic plains are. Maybe I'll give the topic a rest.
