Goulburn-Murray Water has released a new-look Waranga Basin Recreation Guide to provide key information about one of the state’s largest inland waterways.
The guide, printed on waterproof paper, provides visitors with important information on water levels, facilities, fishing, camping and boating as well as the rules in place to ensure everyone can enjoy the basin’s many recreation opportunities.
G-MW central area dams operations manager Scott Wikman said the guide served as a ‘‘one-stop shop’’ for people to get the key information they needed to make the most of a visit to Waranga Basin.
‘‘It still has the map similar to the last recreation guide, but contains greater detail and reminders of the hazards to be aware of, particularly as the water levels change,’’ Mr Wikman said.
‘‘Make sure you grab a copy when you visit, or download one in advance.’’
Waranga Basin was formed on the site of a natural wetland once known as Gunn’s Swamp. It supplies irrigation, stock and domestic and environmental water to entitlement holders in the north and west of the state.
