Roxburgh Dam

We turned off the main highway because I wanted to drive over the Roxburgh Dam. My photo’s taken from the boat ramp after crossing. Central Otago, New Zealand. 16 Aug. Click on photo to enlarge.

  1. Wow. That is an impressive looking structure, Liz. I was curious about the dam, so I checked for information on-line about it and learned a lot about the amazing history of how the dam was built–it took a lot of energy and ingenuity and a lot of time to get the materials to that location to build the dam, divert the river, construct transmission lines, and fill the lake behind the dam.

      1. Thanks, Liz. I went looking back at your site and there were a least a half-dozen posts this month that I hadn’t seen, so I caught up on them. The videos and especially the old photos were fascinating to see. It was cool listening to some of the old time workers reminiscing about how things were done when the dam was maintained manually.
