Gwydir Wetlands State Conservation Area

Open, check current alerts 


Gwydir Wetlands State Conservation Area was created in February 2011. It covers an area of 9712.78ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.

The Gwydir wetlands are an example of a terminal delta wetland, one of the few inland wetlands remaining in the Murray-Darling Basin. 

Waterbird Lagoon bird hide is a haven for birdwatchers. Nestled among rushes at the edge of one of the lagoons, the bird hide is the perfect spot to see the rich birdlife, frogs and wildlife of one of the most significant wetland systems in NSW.

These maps give a basic overview of park attractions and facilities, and may not be detailed enough for some activities. We recommend that you buy a topographic map before you go exploring.
