The Goolwa Barrages comprise five barrage structures in the channels linking Lake Alexandrina to the mouth of the River Murray and the Coorong in Australia. They were constructed in order to (1) reduce salinity levels in the lower reaches of the River Murray, Lake Alexandrina and Lake Albert and (2) to stabilise the river level, for both upstream irrigation and pumping.
