Tod River Reservoir

Tod River Reservoir

The Tod River Reservoir is 27 km north of Port Lincoln and an ideal spot for a barbeque picnic and hit of tennis. While you’re there you can learn about the dam wall construction in the early 20th century and visit the lookout.

The reservoir is supplied by concrete channels fed from weirs constructed across the Tod River and its major tributary, Pillaworta Creek.

The reservoir is not used in the water supply due to the water’s high salinity levels.

Capacity: 11.3 megalitres (one gigalitre is one billion litres), that will fill more than 5,500 Olympic swimming pools

Public access: Yes, for details and opening hours visit

We currently don't monitor this reservoir's volume.
