Lock 9 and Walpolla Island



On Tuesday 21st of July 2009 the MWPS Enviro Issues Student Action Team went to Lock 9 and Walpolla Island. When we arrived we walked across the weir. On the other side of the weir we walked across the top of the sections of a fish ladder. It was scary!!!

  Then we went back over the weir and we saw the Murray River flag ( I didn’t know it had one). Courtney took this awesome photo of Shona throwing some dirt and some boys accidentally  threw a lemon in the water. Then we got back on the bus and headed for Horseshoe Lagoon. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

   We ate lunch at Horseshoe Lagoon and then we went up through the bush with Paula. We played a game where we had to guess different species of fish, birds, snakes and frogs. I learnt that:

  • The Lock 9 was completed in 1923.
  • The flag was first raised in Goolwa.
  • There are no snakes in the area.

By the way did anyone know any websites with information on fish ladders? If so please leave a comment.
