Please note
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch
  • Check the weather before you set out as the road to Quibray Bay as the carpark can become boggy when it rains

Nestled within Towra Point Nature Reserve near Kurnell, Quibray Bay viewing platform offers magnificent views of maintained, fragile ecosystems without disturbing the surrounding plants and animals.

The short boardwalk features wild acacia and banksia on either side, which then opens out to the viewing platform. Birdwatching and nature photography are at their best here, as the views sprawl broadly across the coastline; migratory birds come to breed and nest along these ancient shores.

The mangroves, saltmarsh and mudflats of Towra Point Nature Reserve are also visible and in spring, full-bloomed wildflowers dab the landscape with bright, untamed colour.
