Attention Nature Lovers!

The Myponga Reservoir will soon be open from April 14 2019 for all sorts of recreational activities.

Walk, run, cycle around bushland tracks with water views, enjoy picnics, and take in the stunning scenery at lookouts and viewing platforms and so much more.


The 3.3km (approx.) loop track on the south east side of the reservoir takes you through open plains, forested areas and native vegetation. The unsealed trail is suitable for walking and running.


The unsealed trail at Myponga is a shared-use path for both cyclists and walkers. Please be considerate of other trail users.


There are several picnic tables along the trail and of course you’re welcome to pack a picnic basket complete with a blanket or chairs so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the view.


The lookout above the Myponga dam wall on the western side of the reservoir is the prime stop for a stunning view of the reservoir, the dam wall and its spillway.

Birds and wildlife

Take some time and see if you can spot some of the special species that call Myponga home. More than 120 bird species live in the area including some that enjoy life by the water and others that can be found inland. You can also watch for native animals, lizards and listen for frogs.

Future activities like shore-based fishing are also to be introduced later in the year.

Get along to the open day on Sunday 14th April with lots of fun for the whole family! Info below.
