One of the lesser-known birding spots, but a good one, nonetheless. This one has many different species, including honeyeaters, water birds and finches.
The track we’ll be taking is easy and flat with a mixture of sealed and unsealed paths. The track can get muddy in some sections so be sure to bring enclosed shoes.
There are no toilets on-site, if duty calls, please see https://toiletmap.gov.au
At the end of the walk, we’ll have a quick BYO morning tea and go through the bird list.
