The Dam experienced its first flood ever recorded in February 1996. It was the first and largest flood. Yet this beautiful and still river is home to a number of stunning properties. The view of the dam is best described as breathtaking. This makes buying property near the dam not only valuable but also a real investment for any home buyer. Whether it’s a house or a flat your property will be worth the investment.

The river has also made its way into the Guinness Book of World Records. This is due to the annual yacht race which has earned it quite an esteemed title. This popular race attracts tourist every year and is one worth diarising.
