Visitor Saftey - Glenelg River Fluctuating River Height

Please be aware, the water level in the Glenelg River is currently fluctuating regularly due to seasonal conditions including rainfall events, tidal movements and ocean conditions.  Higher than normal water levels can cause some jetties and boat ramps to be inundated with water.
 
Visitor Safety is priority - Do not enter an inundated jetty or boat ramp, as conditions are likely to be very slippery and there could be damage to the structure not easily observed. 
 
Park Rangers are regularly monitoring conditions.  If a jetty or boat ramp is expected to be inundated for an extended period, the visitor asset may be closed for public safety until such time the asset can be deemed safe for use.  Please observe warning and closure signs where erected.
