Sunday the 6th October we went to checkout the Wellington Dam. South-West’s biggest dam is overflowing the first time in four years and for the third time in the last decade. Thousands of litres of water are bursting over the 367 metre long crest of the concrete wall thanks to recent heavy rainfalls. I filmed and Elisabeth shot some pictures of this special event. To see the water flowing watch the video here or on Vimeo
