+Tumbledown Creek bridge, Arthurs Lake

If you are intending to go to Arthurs Lake please note that Tumbledown Creek bridge which allows access to Little Lake and Gunns Lake is currently closed due to its deteriorating structural condition. This timber bridge was originally built nearly 15 years ago to provide access to transmission lines and has been left in place to allow recreational users access to Little Lake and Gunns Lake.

It is unlikely the adjacent ford will to be crossable until the lake level reduces in the mid-summer months. It’s estimated that high clearance vehicles can pass through the ford when Arthurs Lake water level is more than 1.8m below full supply level, however it will be up to individuals to assess whether conditions are appropriate to allow safe fording.

We thank you for your patience and if you have any question please contact Anna Blake

+Bradys Lake upgrade works

Water levels in Bradys Lake, Lake Binney and Tungatinah Lagoon will be temporarily drawn down in October as part of our normal operations.

During this time we will be taking advantage of the lower levels to undertake upgrade works to the international canoe slalom course. The upgrade works will improve the safety and usability of the course for the paddling community prior to the 2019 National Canoe Slalom Championships that will be held at Bradys Lake in January.

We appreciate your patience and apologise for any inconvenience during the works.
