Magazine Creek Wetlands is part of a series of constructed wetlands that form the Barker Inlet Wetlands, the largest constructed wetlands in Australia. The wetlands aim to:
- Enhance habitat for plants, birds and other animals
- Improve the quality of water discharging into the sea
- Allow stormwater retention, pollution management, flood control and water re-use
- Provide ecotourism and educational opportunities
The wetlands were designed to provide a range of habitat for birds, including breeding and nursery areas for water birds. 130 different species have been recorded to date, such as pelicans, spoonbills and cormorants, as well as many migratory birds from the Northern hemisphere that visit the area from September.
Normally closed to the public, you can join us from 9am to 11:30am to assist with water bird surveys and experience this important habitat.
