Lake George

I come from Canberra, the capital of Australia. Just out of Canberra, on the way to Sydney, there's a huge lake, called "Lake George."


These days, as Canberra and it's surrounding area is faced with one of it's worst droughts in years, you would never guess that not that long ago, it was filled with water, at times overflowing onto the road.

Many people spent fun summers fishing and swimming there, but not everyone had such happy times. Many people lost their lives there, and there are stories about ghostly sightings around Canberra. One of the best-known is that if you drive past Lake George at night by yourself and look in the rear-vision mirror, you'll see someone sitting in the backseat of your car.

There have also been reports of ghost trucks and cars that drive along the highway late at night when few cars are traveling.
