We stopped off here on our way to our Wetlands tour - Carrboree Billabong. Would have liked to have spent more time here to take photos but didn't get the chance. Looks great.

Watched the sunset but had to come back for the sunrise. It was well worth it. The bird life and variety was spectacular and the noise.... just make sure you turn off the car to listen.
