Lake Wendouree, Ballarat

As posted previously, Lake Wendouree in Ballarat was the site of 1956 Summer Olympics for rowing and canoeing.

It's also got a sailing club that had a big sign up offering chances to sail but the weather was grey and raining so I went instead into the Art Gallery where saw a lovely picture of boats sailing on it back in the 19th Century.

You can still seeing the rowing lanes and the lake shore is dotted with boat houses though one has been turned into a nice restaurant.

I should try to arrange my next trip down under to be in summer rather than winter.
