سد سنگي و معلق مرونداه در منطقه #ياراولي
در قلب ايالت ويكتوريا از پر طرفدارترين مناطق ييلاقي اين ايالت #استراليا
ميباشد. گونه هاي منحصر به فرد گياهي و پرندگان و حيوانات و مزارع بزرگ و مرتفع #انگور
و كارخانه هاي #شراب
سازي از ديگر زيبايي هاي اين منطقه ميباشد. متاسفانه به دليل خشكسالي هاي مدارم سطح اب پشت اين سطح به طرز نگران كننده اي پايين امده است.
