Emerald

2/6/2017 – 3/6/2017

As the name suggests it certainly is green out here and very similar to Mildura, growing everything from grapes to avocados and everything in between. Shane has visited here before when a client of his experienced some extreme storm damage so its a nice trip down memory lane for him.
The dam out here is pretty impressive in fact damned impressive. Fairbairn Dam holds back the waters of Lake Maraboon and covers a massive 150 square kilometres – its also a nice place for fishing or picnicking. Holding twice as much as the Sydney Harbour and even better plays host to the delicious Red Claw Yabby.

The botanical gardens is a great place for us to go for a walk and lots to look too.

We did dropped into the information centre here – the lady was amazing, knew all about the area and had some really helpful advise.
