Goolwa Morning

The new Coorong, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth (CLLMM) Research Centre announces its new location as the top storey of the Goolwa Aquatic Club on Barrage Road in Goolwa opening its doors in early February 2024.

Goyder Institute Director, Dr Alec Rolston, said “We are delighted to be working with Alexandrina Council for our new location to support our critical research into the needs of the CLLMM region. Our aim is to provide an evidence-base for future management decisions in the region and the broader Murray-Darling Basin.

While our four locally-based staff members will be based at the Research Centre in Goolwa, our work will include reaching out to communities throughout the wider region.

The space will be utilised as a hot-desking space for visiting researchers, but also home to an augmented reality experience which will showcase the values of the region in a new and exciting way, as well as providing community space for engagement activities.

It will serve as a base for knowledge exchange and will showcase the research in our region.

We are very much looking forward to working with communities to inform management decision making in the region.”

The CLLMM Research Centre will be hosting a public launch in early February. In addition, the community is invited to have their say in future research priorities and engagement activities.
