Where’s the Water?

There are probably many more things to do with kids in Wirrulla than I have listed but if you’re just driving through – here’s a quick photo opportunity.

I have seen a few things in my travels but there always seems to be something new to see. I certainly didn’t expect to see anything unusual as we drove into a tiny little country town called Wirrulla in South Australia.

They have a jetty, nothing unusual there except, Wirrulla has no water.

None!

No beach, no creek, not anything that would require a jetty. It is an inland jetty. Now THAT is unusual don’t you think?

  1. It’s unusual but also a sign that Mother Nature is dealing with climate change in this case, loss of water supply.. It is very important to take care of our environment as well as Mother Nature so that we will always have fresh air and water, lots of trees,flowers,bees,etc. Avoid polluting, unnecessary garbage dumping,etc. We just had Earth Day. Very important to observe that and everyday as well because we all love Mother Nature.

    1. Absolutely Josie, great advise. It seems in this instance this little town has a sense of humor and is having some fun with us. This is the tee off for their local golf course, built as a novelty but in saying that – there are sand hills far beyond this town that remain from when the sea did reach beyond (hundreds or thousands of years ago) but now the sea is miles away and this is an inland town. Quite interesting I think 🙂

      1. It’s also possible that long,long ago, the earth had gone through a lot of changes like EROSION(you’ll learn more about it in your future science lessons). For example , here in my Canadian province of New Brunswick, we have the Fundy Rocks aka Flower Pot Rocks near the Bay of Fundy. Erosion in a way had chiseled much of the sea bottom and came out with these rock formations.

      2. That is so interesting Josie. I have googled them – how awesome is that ?! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hopewell_Rocks Although there are better photos on google images google.com.au/search?q=Flower+Pot+Rocks+Bay+of+Fundy+Canadian+province+of+New+Brunswick&biw=1920&bih=979&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwil1oTT67TMAhXnxqYKHSowCf8Q_AUIBigB

      3. Loved the photos! My heath card has a picture of these rocks. I had already walked through that sea bottom during low tide. No one is allowed to walk there during high tide. Your Australian coral reef is very important for the survival of marine life. The movie Finding Nemo and the yet to be released film Finding Dory emphasizes that. Food for thought.

    1. ah-harr!! So so many more surprises Ellah 😉
      It seems the town is having a joke with us as the town is miles from the sea and this is actually the tee off for their golf course. Certainly gave me a giggle that’s for sure haha

    1. They built the jetty as a novelty tee off for their local golf course, the town itself is miles from the sea. I bet they get a lot of fun out of people like me passing through wondering what it’s all about haha 🙂
