"In the 1920's the River Murray changed from an ephemeral stream to a vast lake when the construction of lock 3 and its weir impounded the water. The raised level drowned many beautiful red gums on the floodplain which today provide fallen branches as roosting platforms for pelicans. The new level also filled the Banrock wetland permanently. Fish eating pelicans dine on the introduced carp that thrive in the new lake-like environment. At night the stars illuminate the ghostly gums." Manager of Banrock Station Wine
