Fivebough is an internationally recognised wetland at a notable 400 hectares in size. Visitors can follow the five kilometers of walkways which lead to hides and viewing platforms to enjoy the abundant birdlife. By following the walking trails through head-high Cumbungi reeds, you will find a series of hides. Take some time to quietly enjoy the many birds in the wetland, but don’t forget your binoculars, you may sport a rare or threatened species.
Fivebough is home to migratory birds from the northern hemisphere during spring. They stay for the summer and then return to their breeding grounds in northern Australia and the islands to our north. In winter the wetlands are home to thousands of migratory birds taking advantage of the food and shelter resources of the wetlands.
