Beetaloo reservoir, just to the east of Port Pirie in the southern Flinders Ranges, offers shore-based fishing and is currently stocked by RecFish SA with Golden Perch, Silver Perch and Murray Cod. See RecFish SA’s website for more details.
The reservoir was built between 1886 and 1890 to supply the Yorke Peninsula. The original plan was to build the new reservoir out of masonry. Eventually, after opening seven new quarries in an effort to find suitable stone, masonry was abandoned in favour of concrete.
Capacity: 3.18 gigalitres (one gigalitre is one billion litres), that will fill more than 1,500 Olympic swimming pools
Public access: Yes, for details and opening hours visit reservoirs.sa.gov.au.
