A short 3 km walk around the lagoon at Killalea. On days when it has been wet you can stick to the high side and when the weather has been dry you can walk around the lagoon. This is a good walk to tie in with the Killalea walk and have a picnic lunch between the 2.
This is a man made wetlands which at the moment has to much water. The council are currently trying to fix up a design fault which stops them from being able to alter the water levels. When repairs are complete it has the potential to be a very good location.
This location is a great spot for waders and terns. In 2015 birdwatchers came all the way from around Australia to see the Wite-rumped Sandpiper. At present the local birding community are in the process of having it classified as an IBA site due to the number of Black Swans (14,000) and Eurasion coots. During the summer months the little terns are found breeding on the sand dunes.
A very easy walk for a a good variety of birds. Good views can be had walking from the front gate to the carpark and picnic area. The walk from the carpark follows the creek to an intersection. Take the left fork to cross the river then follow the river back to the main road. Take the right fork and it takes you up the hill to the dam viewing platform. You can then proceed on through the turnstile and down to the banks of the dam.
