The Dam


The dam has gotten a face-lift within the last few years. If you look closely you'll see that the top of the dam has the same silhouette as George Earl's mill.

The place has been a playground for generations of kids growing up in Hobart. Many a crayfish and small catfish where caught among the rocks by kids with nothing more than their bare hands. The slide down the dam has ruined many pairs of shorts. The area has become a haven for ducks. The "dam" ducks, as they are called, swarm to anyone with an open hand or bag full of bread or lettuce. They stop traffic as they single file across the main road without a care in the world. An annoyance to some, but they would be missed it they weren't around.

See the dam in winter.
