We love Sunset Dam, and spend a lot of time there when we stay at LS.

It's a great place just to sit and watch birds and all of the animal traffic coming for a drink.

Sunset can really test a photographers patience :wink: Amazing photos can be taken if you take your coffee and eats and sit there for a whole day.
