Lake Argyle is the biggest man-made lake in Western Australia. Built in 1972 by the damming of the Ord River, the lake covers 980km2 and is so expansive it looks more like an inland sea than a lake. Holding an incomprehensible volume of water, there are sections where the horizon is endless water from both boat and air.
