The Aldinga Washpool Lagoon

 

The Aldinga Washpool Lagoon is a rare ephemeral freshwater wetland. For a relatively small conservation area, it has an astonishing number of resident and visiting bird species, including some from as far away as Japan and China. The shallow water teems with invertebrate aquatic life.

 

In 2001, the Aldinga Washpool Lagoon was recognised as a nationally important wetland and recorded in the Commonwealth Government's Directory of Important Wetlands in Australia.  You can find the Information Sheet for the Aldinga Washpool Lagoon by entering SA072 in the Wetland Refcode box.

 

A wealth of documents related to the Aldinga Washpool Lagoon dated from 1935 until the present can be found on this website under "Documents". Photographs and links to related organisations are also available.
