RvTrips' review

22 Feb 2016

Euston Weir and Lock 15 are built on the Murray River and can be seen from the Victorian side just a short drive from Robinvale along Pethard Road onto Weir Road, or from the NSW side near Euston. On the Victorian side you can clearly view the lock from a lovely parkland area which has picnic tables and public toilets. The viewing area is beside the Weir Caravan Park which has several sites overlooking the river.

Our first view of the Euston Weir was from the NSW side of the Murray River by travelling through the small town of Euston along Cowper street and following a dirt track through Euston State Forest towards the river and fish ladder. The ladder's purpose is to mimic the current of the river (on one side of the weir) allowing fish to travel upstream where the weir wall itself would not allow them to get past. This ladder enables the Fisheries Department to monitor the health of fish stocks in the Murray River.  

From the NSW (Euston) side you can see the great volume of water flowing over the top of Weir 15. Apparently about 32,000 mega litres of water flows through this system daily. You can see all the pelicans sitting near the base of the weir waiting for a free feed of any fish that may be washed over the wall.

Originally the lock and weir were constructed for navigation of the river by cargo boats, but nowadays its main importance is for irrigation and recreation. I think it is worth taking the time to look at both sides of the Weir and Lock 15 - this will give you a perspective of the sheer volume of water.
