Seaford Wetlands Reserve

Nature and Wildlife Seaford

Description

Phone: 1300 322 842

Description

The wetlands are well known for superb bird watching opportunities. There is a viewing platform near Austin Road and a good viewing point at the end of Mona Street. A viewing mound at Seaford North Primary School is open to the public outside school hours.

A well-made cycle/walking trail extends around most of the perimeter of the wetlands. Picnic tables are available at various locations. To extend your walk, Kananook Creek Reserve and Seaford Foreshore are about one kilometre and 1.5 kilometres, respectively, west of the reserve.

The remnant wetland areas are the largest remaining natural wetlands of their type in Port Phillip and Western Port basins.

The wetlands are an internationally significant habitat for diversity of bird life, including a number of rare and endangered migratory water birds from as far afield as Siberia.
