Gordon dam in Tasmania. A very impressive piece of engineering. The water level is quite low you can see from the vegetation where it used to be up to.

You can abseil off it, if you want.

I’m sure it’s totally sound and safe, it just seems like an incredible amount of force behind it abd if it ever were to fail there would be catastrophic consequences. Not sure what’s below the dam.
