Had the opportunity to spend half a day at Fogg Dam and was amazed at the variety of birdlife! It was great to experience a range of habitats and particularly enjoyed the boardwalk to the dam and the Monsoon Forest Walk.

Stopped off here after the crocodile jumping cruise. Was a lovely walk along a boardwalk/bush to some viewing platforms. Wear aeroguard, there were a few bugs. Lovely wetland environment. Lots of birds.

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.

Nice little spot. Lots of bird life. We had a picnic lunch at the bird viewing platform at the furtherest end of the park. We did a short walk but turned back as it was midday and very hot. I'd love to come back here...More

We met a fellow traveller who said call in to Fogg Dam and it was the best advice of all our holiday. Magpie geese were there in the thousands as well as wandering whistling ducks. There were egrets galore, Spoon bills and stilts and terns...More
