Meander along the modern architectural walkways of TYTO that represent the bins vital to the regions mainstay industry sugar cane or connect via casual pathways, bridges over lagoons and through wooded parklands to scale the 11m observation tower for a birds eye view.

We were there first thing in the morning. Quiet walk to the wetland edge seeing lots of birds along the way. Then around to the hide with grebes and herons and waterfowl everywhere. So nice we could have spent hours here.
