I spent a quiet hour here really enjoying the quiet and watching the birds. There is lots of space to chill out and explore. Highly recommended.

Having read the Trip Advisor reviews of the Putta Bucca Wetlands, (including the map and directions to the site which are totally inaccurate) I was rather sceptical about visiting. The Wetlands are located on Putta Bucca Road on the other side of town to Oporto...More

This was an odd little place; I could not work out whether it was man made or natural. It looked in some parts to be half dug up, with the bob cat being recalled before they had completely finished. It is next door to a...More
