The town of Lake Boga in northern Victoria experienced the loss of its lake in early 2008 due to ongoing drought conditions. This lake was central to the town's recreation and tourism industry and formed a defining point of identity for residents and visitors.

The town was chosen as a research case study by the Victorian Department of Planning and Community Development in order to understand the experience and impact of the drying lake on the local community. This qualitative study was conducted through in-depth interviews with Lake Boga residents.
