Panorama

Banrock Station Wetland Complex is a floodplain wetland complex typical of the lower River Murray-Darling floodplain. It comprises areas of freshwater and areas of secondary salinized floodplain with discrete wetland basins and channels. The Site supports two globally threatened species, the green and gold frog (Litoria raniformis) and the river snail (Notopala sublineata) and provides seasonal habitat for at least ten species of migratory waterbirds listed under Australia’s international agreements. The Site adjoins a commercial viticultural enterprise, Banrock Station Wines of BRL Hardy Wine Company, which is managed in a manner complementary to the conservation of the wetland. Conservation, education, science and recreation activities take place within the Site. Surrounding land uses include viticulture, irrigated perennial horticultural, cropping,conservation, residential areas and some grazing of modified pastures. The Site is also recognized for its cultural significance to indigenous Australians.
