Joining the long list of beautiful reservoirs available for public use, the Warren Reservoir Reserve should be added to your list of must see places in South Australia.

In a recent Facebook post, Steven Marshall publicly announced the opening of the Warren Reservoir Reserve as a recreational space for visitors. This means that there will now be public access for hiking, kayaking, cycling and picnicking.


The reservoir is located near Williamstown on the southern fringe of the Barossa Valley and is only an hours drive from our city centre.

With a fishing permit, you are also able to utilise the reservoir as a great fishing destination with fish like Murray cod and golden and silver perch available in the area.

The Barossa Council worked with the State Government to make the area more easily accessible for visitors. They achieved this by upgrading carparks, road access points and constructing new visitor amenities.

The Warren Reservoir Reserve, joins the likes of the Myponga Reserve and the Mount Bold Reservoir.

The Myponga Reserve is also only an hour from the city and there’s a stunning 3.3km hike great for runners or a slow leisurely walk! (Weekend plans sorted?)


The Mount Bold Reservoir is the largest reservoir in South Australia, covering 5,500 hectares of land. Visitors can expect breathtaking views of the landscape and the dam walls.


So grab your friends this weekend and head to one of South Australia’s newest reservoirs open to the public for a healthy dose of nature!
