The weir and lock were completed in 1929. The weir has a dual purpose.. It maintains a high level of water for diversion to irrigated farmlands and regulates water flow further down the Murray.
The lock enables boats to pass to and from the upper and lower levels of the Murray River on each side of the weir.

To allow the migration of fish species upstream past the weir at anytime, special 'fishways' have been built at the abutments of Lock 10. A series of interconnected pools allow the fish to move from pool to pool as part of their upstream travel. This is an important step in the long term recovery of the River Murray ecology.

For visitors to the weir and lock area, numerous picnic tables are available for a pleasant lunch by the water with barbecues across the road for those preferring to cook their own.
