- Remember to take your binoculars if you want to go bird watching.
Great things come in small packages and this little picnic area beside Wingecarribee River is no exception to that rule.
Bring along the family and your picnic supplies and set up for a few relaxing hours in this tranquil wetland setting. You could even bring your own gas stove and enjoy a barbecue. After a hot day, it’s a great place for picnicking in the evening.
Feel free to wander the area, taking binoculars with you for some birdwatching as you try to spot the many species of woodland birds and waterbirds. See if you can also find the two rare old Paddys River box trees. They’ve been around much longer than us.
If you want to explore a bit further, Wingecarribee River walking track begins and ends at the picnic area. This walking track loops you through regenerating forest on Wingecarribee floodplain.
