Orroroo Reservior.

Orroroo is a small country town in the southern Flinders Ranges some 260km north of Adelaide in South Australia. The Reservoir was constructed in 1906. It originally held approximately 1,540 mega litres of water and was used by settlers for growing Lucerne and in dairies. In 1973 silt build up, insufficient rainfall and erosion caused the reservoir to be abandoned.

This will be the last posting from us as we head to the Great Ocean Road tomorrow and then onto The Grampians before returning home and back to work.
