MONEY’S CREEK UPPER LAGOON FLOOD GATES OPENING SCHEDULE – 2021

Please find below the scheduled opening dates and times for the Money’s Creek upper lagoon floodgates located on the southern end of The Causeway. 

NOTE: Please read the accompanying Guidelines which explains the methodology used to identify these times/dates and the reasons why there may be changes to the schedule.

Moneys Creek Causeway Gate Operation Guidelines – 2021

Bundaberg Regional Council regularly opens the tide gates on the causeway located at Moneys Creek Lagoon near Kelly’s Beach, Bargara. The gates are operated in conjunction with tides that are high enough to allow sea water to enter the lagoon, and to enable the lagoon water to flush out, allowing a mix of fresh and salt water and the movement of fish through the causeway. This is typically carried out once a month in conjunction with either a ‘full’ or a ‘new’ moon tide.

Other circumstances in which Council may operate these gates include large rainfall events to alleviate the backing up of storm water in the Moneys Creek system, or to manage dissolved oxygen levels in the lagoon when temperatures are very high and no rainfall is predicted. These two modes of operation are important for managing infrastructure and for managing the quality of the water in extreme weather conditions.

Council aims to avoid peak times for beach goers, such as school and public holidays and weekends. The operation of the tide gates does force the closure of the bathing area located on the beachside (eastern side) of the causeway on Moneys Creek outlet. This area is closed off for safety when tide gates are in operation so please pay attention to the NO SWIMMING signs located throughout this area.

Please note that this timetable is a guide and may be subject to change, for example due to climatic variation, environmental conditions and for safety.

This tide gate operation timetable has been developed using the Bundaberg (Burnett Heads) Tide Table Copyright of the Bureau of Meteorology. The full tide chart and relevant disclaimers can be viewed here.
