Information

The Gurra Gurra wetland complex covers an area of 3000 ha that stretches along the eastern bank of the River Murray to the east of Berri.
At normal river pool levels, about 800 ha of floodplain are permanently inundated. As a result of river regulation and changed flow regimes, approximately 50% of the management area is affected by salinisation, with samphire and salt scalds widespread.
The northern extremity of the wetland area is affected by irrigation drainage from the Lyrup Irrigation Area. Wetland Care Australia rates the complex a high priority land unit for changes in management.
