One of the only places in Town to get the view from. Beautiful at sunset. Well worth the climb to the top.

The water tower provides good views of Port Augusta and the Flinders Ranges and well worth a visit. Go across the bridge and turn left and you will find it.

If you have got a few minutes to spare in Adelaide it is worth stopping for a walk up the water tower. Only a short stroll and several stairs to climb but easy enough to do and a pretty good view up top.

A great view of the town and area on all four sides. You can see the way that the tip of the gulf passes through the town and away from the city.
