  • Beautiful walk around the Tamar wetlands. A fantastic place to observe the local bird life. A $3 voluntary donation to help keep the walk maintained is extremely reasonable for such a great attraction.
  • Cubed cafe was excellent. All the scenic Historical and Natural views were well worth getting off the beaten track for.
  • The volunteers were super friendly and helpful. We only walked to the second bridge but it was still stunning. Pamphlets have a written tour in them at certain number markers as well as a section for identifying different birds
  • A really easy walk to 360 degree views of the wetlands from the pier. Didn't manage to find a high point for a good photo opportunity.
  • Scenic wetland reserve. Best to visit during Low tide. Beware of the tide condition as the broadwalk could be flooded. There should be more sign to warn visitor of potential risk of the boardwalk being submerge in water during high tide
