Happy Jacks


Highest in altitude and possibly the smallest dam of the project, Happy Jacks Pondage fed water from a complex system of aqueducts into Tumut Pond. The school was small, friendly and a popular subject for the SMA's PR cameras as it was the highest school in Australia. Ever.

The following photos have been contributed by Richard Healy.
