Certain areas of the Sir Richard Peninsula (Goolwa Beach) and Murray Mouth are off limits to vehicles and motorbikes. Prohibited areas are clearly marked with signage and barriers.
This area is home to fragile ecosystems, including a number of rare and endangered bird and plant species. The area is also culturally significant for the Ngarrindjeri people. Driving onto sand dunes disturbs these sites. Once this happens, sand starts drifting, making it very difficult for the sites to recover.
The area is patrolled by SA Water staff and a security company.
Please be advised that supply to some SA Water customers connected to the Warren Transfer Main in the Mt Crawford, Birdwood and Cromer area is currently down due to immediate unplanned work being carried out.
SA Water are endeavouring to have works completed prior to 5:00pm to ensure interruption is minimised to customers. Further updates will be provided at this time.
