"Flood Protection Structure"

This construction is an essential defense against the natural disaster of flooding. It has been used more than twenty times since it first came into existence. A model of the barrier is in the Visitor Centre, as is much information pertaining to the purpose of the barrier, how it works and how it was built. The futuristic barriers bear an uncanny resemblance to a fragmented Sydney Opera House. Once a year in autumn, the barrier is tested, allowing you to see the steel gates raised at high tide. Hours vary seasonally. Call for information.
