Myponga

Myponga is at the centre of rich grazing and dairy country, where herds of Friesian cows are often joined at dusk by mobs of grey kangaroos. The town is 58 kilometres south of Adelaide in the Southern Mount Lofty Ranges. Head to Myponga via Carrickalinga and enjoy views of the coast from hilltop lookouts - some of the best in South Australia. There's a good weekend craft and produce market, and a boutique brewery. Many years ago, large gum trees were felled here and prepared for use in the Broken Hill mines. A cheese factory was also established and its produce was noted for its high quality, much of which was exported. In the early 1950s uranium was discovered and mining prospects investigated, however no mines were developed. The name derived from the Aboriginal word maippunga meaning locality of high cliffs. See more of the Fleurieu Peninsula and a coastal playground famed for its laidback lifestyle, beach breaks for surfers of all levels of experience, and top fishing spots. It's a paradise for divers and snorkellers, with dramatic shipwrecks and stunning marine life, including the famed Leafy Seadragon. Enjoy some of the best produce and vineyards in Australia. The Fleurieu Peninsula is home to some prestigious winemaking regions, including McLaren Vale. The history of winemaking in this region goes all the way back to 1842, and it consistently produces some of the best drops you'll ever taste. There's also national parks, golf courses, top quality cuisine and more.

Myponga Reservoir Lookout


The Myponga Reservoir Lookout provides sweeping views of the reservoir and surrounding pine forest. Construction of the reservoir began in 1957 and it was completed in 1962. The concrete arch dam wall is 49 metres high and 226 long. The reservoir is 35 metres deep and holds 26,800 mega litres. When full the water spread covers 280 hectares.

The reservoir supplies water to the southern metropolitan area and the south coast. Unlike other reservoirs Myponga does not receive any water from the River Murray but instead operates from water collected in the natural catchment. Below the reservoir the Myponga River makes its way through the valleys flowing into Gulf St Vincent at Myponga Beach. The Myponga Reservoir Treatment Plant was built in 1993 and currently serves approximately 50,000 people across an area that extends from McLaren Vale to Victor Harbor.

Dogs permitted on a leash. Contact the Yankalilla Visitor Information Centre for more details.

Myponga Beach


Myponga Beach occupies a small valley that has been carved by Myponga Creek and is now partially filled with river and marine sediments forming a flat plain occupied by a few houses and an elongated lagoon and wetland that flows across the southern end of the beach. Houses and shacks line the rear of the beach; so much so a seawall has been built to protect some of the properties. Fifty-metre high grassy bluffs border each end of the beach, with rocks and reefs extending seaward. It is moderately steep and fronted by a narrow continuous bar, with waves averaging about 0.5 metres.

The beach was used as a port and the ruins of the old jetty are still present. Swimming is relatively safe in the sandy central portion of the beach and it is a popular spot for both launching boats and for shore-based fishing off the adjacent rock reefs.
