One of those crazy things ‘lost’ in time. Imagine 1950s holiday makers taking a dip right here, a Catalina flying boat perched in the centre of this lake… and a bit later in time a 2.1km motor racing circuit just behind the embankment… all in the catchment of a World Heritage listed area in scenic but quite suburban Katoomba. Bizarre, or what?
The metal framework that held the Catalina in place is still visible in the lake, btw. And the motor-racing circuit is pretyy well intact, give-or-take. It’s scary-narrow!
