The lake was created in the 1960s by damming a swamp area in the headwaters of the Dandongadale River. After leaving Lake Cobbler the Dandongadale River plunges over a precipice, creating the longest drop waterfall in Victoria (a heady 255m). It then joins the Rose River, which flows into the Buffalo River, before settling down to a quiet life in the backwaters of Lake Buffalo.
4 wheel drive access only. There are several walking tracks around the lake that are worth taking the time out to enjoy.
Dogs not allowed however assistance dogs are welcome in Parks Victoria parks and reserves.
