This wetland trail was opened in 2016 after the wetlands were rehabilitated by SA Water.
The 16-hectare site was formerly a sludge lagoon near a wastewater treatment plant, but has been transformed into a thriving wetland.
The Noarlunga Downs Wetland Trail follows the edge of what is now a predator-free sanctuary. The sanctuary features a series of interconnected pools that treat urban stormwater before the water enters the Onkaparinga River.
