So this weekend, very excited… cafes are back opening so we went for breakfast at Parramatta and then headed over to North Parramatta where we did a loop track around the lake.

Wikipedia says:

  • The masonry arch-walled dam was completed in 1856 to supply water for domestic purposes
  • The dam was the twelfth engineered dam built since Roman times
  • the first engineered dam in Australia
  • the second arch built dam universally that involved calculations for its construction.

Wow. Who knew?

About 5 km

Can’t keep the dog out of the water!
