We want to hear your thoughts about the western section of Button Road at the Aldinga Washpool Lagoon.

The Aldinga Washpool is a special place for many in our community, as well as visitors. Much of the Washpool is now part of the Aldinga Conservation Park and cared for by the Department of Environment and Water’s Parks Department.

Currently, Button Road provides access to the Washpool and to the beach. It includes a car park and a ramp at the western end.

We want to understand community views on this part of Button Road to:

  • Get a clear picture on the issues you think are important
  • Understand what you value most

These insights are important to understand as the Washpool’s long term future is considered through the Park Management planning process underway.

About Aldinga Washpool

The Aldinga Washpool is one of the last intact coastal lagoon systems in the Adelaide region and is an excellent representation of a remnant coastal lagoon system. The wetland supports several important and rare remnant flora and fauna species and serves as a vital habitat for migratory shorebirds during spring and summer.

It is part of the Tjilbruke Dreaming Track and is of spiritual and cultural significance to the Kaurna Nation and the wider Aboriginal community; and is of considerable value to the local community.

The Department of Environment and Water (DEW) is in the process of developing an Aldinga Conservation Park Management Plan. You can find out more about their plans for the Aldinga Conservation Park on the National Parks and Wildlife website.
