About the Trail

The larger of the trails, a 2.6km loop walk around the outside of the island, takes you past wetlands and swamps full of birdlife and stunning river views, partnered with seated rest areas to enjoy.

In the centre of the island is a large grassed area perfect for those family picnics, sports, kite flying or playing with your canine friends. This area is also surrounded by various paved paths with easy access from the carpark for wheelchairs and/or prams.

Want to cool off? Why not paddle the many inlets and coves and explore the island with a whole new perspective.

Please note there are no toilet or BBQ facilties on the island and being a wildlife sanctuary, fishing is not permitted and dogs must be on a leash.
