The Donald Campbell Obelisk



The Obelisk records thect that the famous English speedster, Donald Campbell, back in 1964 attempted to break the world water speed record on Lake Bonney, (he was unsuccessful). he reached 347.5 km/h but the lake was too small and the waves created by the speeding vehicle were too dangerous. It is situated next door to the aptly named "Bluebird Café", after his boat.
