tide gauge at port Germein

historic and unique tide gauge at Port Germein in South Australia

Tide gauge at Port Germein IMG 0560 - This historic and unique piece of maritime equipment is a gauge that, in the 19th century, stood well out to sea and measured and displayed the depth of the water to ensure that sailing ships could safely navigate the waters of Spencer Gulf, in South Australia. It is the only device of its type in the world, and, after being salvaged and restored in recent years, now stands beside the equally historic jetty at Port Germein.
