Meeting and beginning at Cascades Gardens Park, Victoria Point (which has nearby public toilet facilities) we’ll traverse around the bush lined perimeter of the Victoria Point Water Treatment Plant which is adjacent to the Eprapah Creek and through into Cameron Court Park, which we will explore. Then crossing over the Eprapah Creek iron bridge and along to the bush and mangrove lined creek embankment. This is an easy there-and-back-again walk with typically between 30-50 bird species observed, depending on the weather and local flora conditions. The walk will begin at 6:45am sharp, so please ensure your arrival in plenty of time, and can take between 3-4 hours depending on bird activity. Insect repellent and sunscreen are highly recommended.

Directions: The meeting site at Cascades Gardens Park is opposite the Victoria Point AFL Sharks Club on Colburn Avenue, Victoria Point, and there is ample parking along the side road leading off Colburn Avenue and down the opposite side.
