I had researched this attraction extensively prior to visiting, the scale of this monster water conservation project just blew my mind on arrival. It's a huge undertaking to temporarily alter the course of the third largest river in the world, it's an endorsement of human engineering and action to construct the worlds bigest Dam System along side, the like's and building of which has not been seen since the Pyramids Of Egypt. This and cruising upstream through the 5 Gate Stage 135m elevation shiplock is a memory I will cherrish forever. Just knowing that millions of lives in the lower downstream flood plaine each year will be spared makes me feel blessed to have been to such a special place.
