TYTO Wetlands, a 120 hectare rehabilitated wetland area, home to unique flora and fauna including over 240 species of birds (27.4% of Australia's bird species in one location) and many Agile Wallabies. With extensive walking tracks, bird hides and viewing platforms, it is a great way to get up close and personal to wildlife with the most rewarding experiences found in the early morning or late afternoon. Explore on your own or take a tour with our expert guides. Maps, bird lists and local tips are available from the Information and Wetlands Centre to enhance your experience. Short on time? 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. Watch the many species that inhabit the TYTO main lagoon or view the lay of the land. A great photo opportunity!

A beautiful place that was unfortunately very dry when we visited. An easy to walk track that overall is about 3.3kms. Very well maintained tracks with magnificent lakes with flowering Lillys.
