Warren Reservoir Reserve

Warren Reservoir Reserve

A short drive south east of Williamstown in the Barossa Valley, Warren Reservoir Reserve is a great place to drop a line, either from the shore or from your canoe or kayak with a permit. Built on the South Para River between 1914 and 1916, it is currently stocked with Murray cod (catch and release), golden perch and silver perch.

There are two trails within the reservoir reserve to experience: the 5.5 kilometre West Warren loop and the 8.8 kilometre North Warren loop. The West Warren loop also forms part of a link trail to South Para Reservoir Reserve, over a total 4.5 kilometre trail, while the North Warren Loop walk links in to more than 20 kilometres of trails to take hikers through Mt Crawford Forest, adjacent South Para Reservoir and on to Para Wirra Conservation Park.
