Torrumbarry Weir and Interpretive Centre



Discover more about the history of the Murray River and the Torrumbarry Weir at the Torrumbarry Weir Interpretive Centre.

The original Torrumbarry Weir used 14 removable steel trestles that could be winched out of the river to allow the passage of floods. The first diversions from the weir pool occurred in June 1923. The structure operated successfully until 1992, when major damage to its foundations occured. Extensive repairs were carried out to enable the weir to continue functioning, but a recurrence of the foundation failure could not be discounted and the long-term future of the weir was in doubt. It was decided that a new weir structure was required, and the new Torrumbarry Weir was constructed between 1993 and 1996. The existing lock structure was retained.

There is a picnic ground with toilets at the weir.
