Then, it’s off to Long Reef rock platform – a popular spot for waders and shorebirds. Watch these fascinating birds as they search for food along the rocky shoreline.

Your next stop is Warriewood Wetlands. This peaceful, picturesque area is home to a variety of bush birds. The tour finishes up at the beautiful Irrawong Waterfall in North Narrabeen.
