We stopped off here for a picnic lunch and ended up staying longer than we planned. The gates are locked at 3pm on weekdays so we wish we’d arrived earlier. There are plenty of picnic tables and, on the day we were there the place...More

I have lived and visited the area most of my life but was unaware and blown away by this little gem. Well maintained with neatly cut grass and boardwalks where appropriate. A newly made bird hide was great - only wish the opening hours were...More

If you like birdwatching, this is the place for you. Gorgeous wetland surrounded with native forest. A short drive from Taree. Very accessible to all fitness levels. What a find!

Spent a fantastic couple of hours walking each of the tracks. The boardwalk is very well done. Perfect day out seeing beautiful flora and fauna. Taree council and those who reinstated this area should be congratulated. Magnificent job and a real asset to the area....More

If you are a birder, this is an ideal spot to visit, particularly to see wetland birds, but also for parrots, honeyeaters and insectivores. Raptors are also commonly seen in the area.

Well worth a visit and there is a good shelter for a picnic lunch. Great photo opportunity and well worth taking the time to walk around the wetlands. After rain, be prepared with mosquito repellent.

We met relatives here who know the area well and we are so glad they suggested the wetlands for a walk. I have never seen so many beautiful waterlilies - just millions of them! To think this was once farmland that was degraded. It is...More

Such a beautiful place for a walk, make sure it's a cool day because it was extremely hot and not much shade.

Just off the highway near Coopernook and Harrington. Get a self guided walk pamphlet from an info booth somewhere before you go as there were none on site when we got there, but the walking trail around these wetlands is really nice and well laid,...More
