Enjoy, explore, preserve Mount Bold Reservoir Reserve
Mount Bold Reservoir will be closed to visitors on Tuesday 21 May, while SA Water installs a new electrical switchboard. Safe completion of the work is subject to favourable weather conditions, but at this stage, it’s expected the reservoir reserve will reopen at 9am on Wednesday 22 May. 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 reserve 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).
