Myponga Reservoir Reserve

The dam wall at Myponga Reservoir Reserve will be closed to visitors from 12am to 4pm on Monday 26 October, while we use large machinery on site as part of planned maintenance.

The reserve and public lookout will remain open during this time, and Reservoir Road up to the lookout will still be accessible to local traffic.
