  • Close to town and worth a visit, probably better during the wet season for bird life but still worth a visit.  more »

  • I still love this place, Went again a couple of days ago and the water holes are full again but not too many birds. Give it a couple of months and I am sure the birds will be back.. I stopped going after they shut the road to Bald rock. That was my favourite pond.
  • Nice walk. Would recommend taking at least 2l of water per person and sunscreen as it can be very open and hot at times. Great views if you go to the top
  • Great for bird watching and the mountain bike tracks a pretty good. You can walk out to Shelly cove or for an even longer walk, shelly beach. The many Peak trail is also quite nice taking you to the summit of mt Marlow.
  • It was a bit dry and sad on the last visit (2 years of drought) but with the recent rain it will be worth another visit to the bird watching platforms. All up the kids still enjoyed the hot long walk to see 15 different bird species.
  • The area is nice, roads are terrible. If you go slow its rough if you go the limit its rough. Check your Shocks and your tyres before you go.
