Lake Zwarberg

Named after local businessman Albert Zwar in 1912, Lake Zwarberg was formed from the sluice-pit left behind after alluvial gold mining operations. From the beginning, ‘special efforts’ made by the Beechworth Progress Association to ‘improve’ the Lake came to nought. Attempts to turn it into a trout fishery failed, maybe because the trout fingerlings were eaten by the Lake’s resident population of ‘rakali’ — a carnivorous native rodent with thick waterproof fur and webbed feet, which can still be seen in the early morning light. Today Lake Zwarberg remains a strange little lake, fringed with lurid green water plants, beckoning passers-by with its twisted gums and eerie reflections. – Jacqui Durrant
