Lake Mulwala Map & Pictures
« on: December 31, 2011, 01:19:49 AM »
Some pictures of Lake Mulwala.

The google map is a bit obsolete as it was taken while the lake was very low. Gives you an idea on how much timber is in the lake though. Zoom in on the map for full effect.


Good facilities ( boat ramps and toilets )












Only downside , being xmas holidays there are plenty of water skiers using the lake. But once out amongst the timber, the chop is bearable.

Cheers,
Dave.

Why the hell anyone would water skii there with all those partially submerged stumps is beyond me. Got me wondering what the oxygen levels in the water are with all that rotting timber through the lake ...

Nice pics.

The river bed is wide and  very well defined.  Closer to the wall the main basin is quite open.   I dont think there's any problem with oxygen levels

I was planning to do it this year Crackers, but I'll probably be in Darwin on opening weekend so I'll have to put it off for another year.

Crackers - I'll be there.

I'm pretty sure all the timber has done all its rotting. I think the lake was flooded around 1939 (not checked). As AB says, the area near the weir wall is wide open and plenty of skiing room. The river feeding the lake is also very popular for skiing but the lake is very big and most of it is covered with timber so it is easy to get out of the hoards. Even Cod Classic weekend, you can get away from the crowds (a bit) by heading into the timber and casting lures about.

Great pics

Cheers, NS

The trick is to find one of the old submerged lagoons over on the NSW side.
