The lake is one of Rippon Lea's most dramatic features. It was extended in 1882 as part of the changes undertaken for Sargood by William Sangster, Melbourne's foremost landscaper of the time. This panoramic view assembled from three photographs taken by J W Lindt in about 1885 shows the garden taking shape in the picturesque scheme that largely survives to this day.
