Easy track
Starting from the car park on Wayne Goss Drive, Berrinba, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Berrinba Wetlands Nature Refuge, visiting many lookouts and bird hides along the way. Expect a pleasant and refreshing stroll along a flat concrete track that is wheelchair friendly. As a plus, dogs are allowed on leash in the area, meaning you can bring the whole family and enjoy a peaceful picnic by the water. The lookouts along the way provide you with panoramic views of the area, and are quite popular among birdwatchers. You have a chance to spot heaps of bird species including the resident pelicans. Take your time and appreciate the varied scenery throughout your journey, and read the informative signposts to learn more about the flora and fauna of the area. Plenty of seats are provided for you to rest and eat. The track is mostly shaded, but some sunscreen and a hat won’t hurt. Although it’s not a demanding hike, it can be pretty hot and humid in warmer months. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
