Our feathery friends will be arriving after completing their amazing long-haul flight from winter feeding grounds in South East Asia. Come along to celebrate their arrival on this award-winning evening tour. You'll be guided by one of our knowledgeable and experienced NPWS rangers.

This hugely popular activity will engage all the family. It's a good idea to bring a small personal torch, insect repellent and to wear something warm.
