I really enjoyed visiting this island. It's hidden, but large and surprisingly beautiful. I would advice visitors to take along a picnic basket and wear comfortable shoes.

Relaxing boat trip through the waterways. Children enjoyed spotting the different birds species. Was surprised to find out that you can hop on / hop off at the nearby shopping centre, should you wish... Something different to do with the family during school holidays

Hidden in the jungle of housing complexes,this sanctuary come as a bit of a surprise.Well kept,one meanders through pathways along waterways and dry bush. Certainly an interesting spot to visit, to watch mainly waterbirds.The hides are well maintained and provide excellent viewing.

Such a lovely place to visit on a sunny day. Very unexpected amongst the Century City Towers. A nice place to watch birds and 'get lost' on wooden walkways.
