Lake Kerferd

Spring-fed from the Stanley Plateau, Lake Kerferd was constructed in 1862 to retain the waters of the Hurdle Swamp for gold mining purposes. Named afterlong-serving Member for Ovens, conservative politician George Briscoe Kerferd, the Lake quickly became a popular location for picnics, fetes and an annual rowing regatta. Lake Kerferd became the dedicated source of Beechworth’s water supply in 1904. Surrounded by a forest of majestic white-trunked brittle gums in which koalas are easily spotted, Lake Kerferd is now a haven for the endangered trout cod. – Jacqui Durrant
