Event description
A great walk for children and families through native bush, lots of birdlife to be seen!

About this Event

Starting at the reserve car park, there is a copse of native bush to walk through before the track takes you parallel to the creek. Here you walk along a stop bank track in the open for about 10-15 minutes. Species of native flaxes line the creek and are spectacular in flower during the summer. After crossing a stile, the track leads into a densely wooded swamp area with a boarded walkway.

The walkway ends at the Bird Hide, a camouflaged hut set out on the Lake for easy viewing of bird and wildlife. Bird-life known to reside in the area include: mute swans, black swans, pukekos, Canada geese, and several species of duck, white heron, pied stilts, Australasian crested grebe, royal spoonbill, grey warbler, fantail, kingfisher, swamp harrier, pied shag, and little shag.

A great walk for children and families, it is a return track and takes approximately 20 minutes each way. Mountain buggy style pushchairs are suitable, but be prepared to lift over fences. The reserve entrance has a pleasant and sheltered spot for picnics.
