  • Very nice walk to perform weather; very informative bird varied according to the season... practical observatories, beautiful new belvedere; leave early, after eating! Count at least 3 hours of walk, don't forget not binoculars and camera! Dog forbidden

  • One of the best sites certainly to watch and photograph extremely diverse birds. The site is superb and the facilities are all at once discreet and functional enough. It is just a pity that the aperture range is too narrow or inadequate (in November should be open at 9: 00 – 10: 00 and close at 5 pm instead of 6: 00 pm)

  • Amazing place. You can see so many birds and they're all there to be seen, not hiding like some places!! Take the time to walk all 6km around the lake. Really worth it.
  • Excellent experience, highly recommended. Lunch in the middle at Mios must be experienced (chicken and potatoes).
  • There is likelihood that we came there off-season (in september), but there wasn't much to see from the closeup besides the opossum.
  • The reserve takes care of bookings for the canoe. Nice and friendly staff. However the trip is creepy with coming out of the water and trees that soar above. You see through the water. It was not very reassuring. Couple of beginner struggled to turn (no accompanying for 10 km to work around tree trunks in the water). I don't think not renew or advise...

  • For the reserve, it takes about 4 hours to go around. The course is super nice. The setting is very nice and the birds are present and very visible without disturbing them as far. Just be observant and quiet. Be careful not to pass after loud children. For canoeing. Very quiet and easy route for all. A nice and relaxing. About 2:30 in downhill. Very cool staff. In short a full day. I highly recommend you do at least one of the two.
