As we were in the area and the sun was shining, we decided to visit the Barossa Reservoir which is located a short distance from Gawler South Australia towards Mannum. The reservoir was built between 1899 and 1903 to supply the township of Gawler with water.
The wall of the reservoir got it's name of Whispering Wall because of the excellent acoustics that has been created by the construction.
When you stand with one person at each end of the wall on the inside of the curve, you can whisper to each other. This can be heard by the other person as if you are standing along side of each other.
