Enjoy, explore, preserve Mount Bold Reservoir Reserve
Mount Bold Reservoir will be temporarily closed to visitors between 8 and 11 July, and then again from 15 July to 30 August, while SA Water is using heavy machinery on site that will block normal safe access.
The reservoir reserve will be open from 12 to 14 July in between the planned works.
In the meantime, you can still go to other reservoir reserves open around the state to enjoy, explore and preserve – visit here for more details.
Mount Bold, the largest reservoir in South Australia, is about 40 km south of Adelaide. The reservoir is surrounded by more than 5,500 ha of land, including three Trees for Life sites, and much native vegetation that has conservation significance. The reserve is predominantly sting-bark woodland, but also has Manna Gum woodland, swamps and creeks. More than 160 native animals call Mount Bold home including the Southern Brown Bandicoot.
The flora graphic for Mount Bold is Messmate Stringybark (Eucalyptus obliqua).
