  STS61A-50-0069 Lake Eildon, Victoria, Australia November 1985
Lake Eildon, the serpentine feature in the middle of the picture, is located approximately 80 miles (130 kilometers) northeast of Melbourne. The reservoir was created by damming the Goulburn River as it cuts through the scenic mountain and plateau terrain near the southern end of the Great Dividing Range. The lighter green area on the image maps an extensive plateau with an average elevation of 2000 feet (610 meters). The darker, more rugged terrain is heavily forested with several peaks south of the lake reaching almost 5000 feet (1525 meters) in elevation above sea level. STS61A-50-070 provides an overlapping view northeast of this area.
