Fleurieu Sound Map update: Goolwa Barrages

goolwabarrage2-april12

A new addition to the Fleurieu Sound Map.

It is a calm overcast morning on the Goolwa Barrages, a structure constructed in 1940 to regulate the flow of fresh water from the Murray River into the salt water inlet (and vice-versa.) The barrages are currently closed and a gentle lapping of water can be heard whilst the sound of a distant jetski permeates the periphery along with the calls of resident water birds. Beyond the narrow dunes to the west (to the right of the audio field) the surf thunders across Sir Richard’s Peninsula, which extends along the coastline from Goolwa Beach to the Murray Mouth, and forms the beginning of the Coorong National Park.
