Full closure of River-based Riverland Parks

Updated: 01 September 2022

All camp­sites and a num­ber of roads/​tracks with­in riv­er-based River­land Parks will close on Mon­day 5 Sep­tem­ber 2022 until Wednes­day 30 Novem­ber 2022 due to flood­ing from unreg­u­lat­ed flows. Day Vis­i­tors are wel­come. Parks may be accessed by dri­ving on open roads only, walk­ing, moun­tain bik­ing, canoe­ing or small boats if safe to do so.

Unreg­u­lat­ed riv­er flows into SA are cur­rent­ly 54,800ML/day, as a result, low-lying areas and flood­plains have become inun­dat­ed caus­ing the clo­sure of some camp­sites and access tracks in all River­land Parks, with the excep­tion of Dang­gali. Recent advice from the Mur­ray-Dar­ling Basin Author­i­ty fore­casts an increase in riv­er flows, pos­si­bly exceed­ing 60,000ML/day on or around 13 Sep­tem­ber 2022 and con­tin­ue ris­ing to pos­si­bly exceed 70,000ML/day by mid-late Octo­ber 2022 which will cause exten­sive flood­ing in our Parks with camp­sites and access tracks becom­ing inaccessible. 

Rangers will con­tin­u­al­ly mon­i­tor our Parks and pro­vide updates on acces­si­bil­i­ty, with a view of reopen­ing when pos­si­ble. Dang­gali Con­ser­va­tion Park remains open with camp­sites and the Cano­pus Shear­ers Quar­ters avail­able for booking. 

The fol­low­ing camp­sites are closed:

  • Bor­der Cliffs
  • Chow­illa Creek­side campsites
  • Lyrup Flats
  • Katara­p­ko
  • Loch Luna
  • Kaiser Strip
  • Moorook
