A bit out of the way however worth a drive past. The lawns lovely and green and a nice place for a picnic or to eat your lunch. A good view of the water.

Great perspective of country city living, has 360 degree views of port Augusta and is a nice 30 mint stop over point if travelling through. Unique views and worth the stretch of the legs.

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.
