Wetlands

In the Wetlands an array of wading birds can be viewed foraging for fish and crustaceans in the waterways. This area depicts the amazing diversity of our natural wetlands that are important fringing areas and provide a link to many ecosystems.

In this area, you will find a multitude of bird species – including the black-necked stork – as well as fruit bats, koalas and ‘The Hut’.

‘The Hut’ is the central location from which most of our Tours and Presentations depart or occur.
