Walking Trails

There are three walking tracks for you to explore the Wonga Wetlands. All start and finish outside the visitors centre.

Green trail – 0.5km
A short walk that returns on the same route from the education centre along 2 of the lagoons, a great taste of what Wonga Wetlands has to offer.

Blue trail – 1.2km (approximately 20 minutes)
This walk is a short circuit that showcases 4 of the 7 lagoons and the Wiradjuri Campsite. Stop at the bird hide and see if you can spot any of the 154 identified bird species that frequent the wetlands.

Red trail – 2.5km (approximately 45 minutes)
Starting at the Wiradjuri Campsite, this walk provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy the full experience of the wetlands taking you through all 7 of the lagoons. View an abundance of wildlife in the several bird hides along the way and marvel at the beautiful lagoons that provide a scenic and natural setting for the large mature gums on the edges.

Bird Watching

The constant wetting and drying cycle of the wetlands keeps bird numbers and diversity higher than a natural system, which creates a more intense opportunity for bird watching. With over 154 identified bird species Wonga Wetlands is a bird watchers paradise. Visit e-bird and enter your sightings. Here are some of the more common bird life to be found or download a full list here and see if you can tick them all off.
