Magpie Geese Feeding

Daily at 10.30am the Magpie Geese are fed on the artificial grass mat on the edge of BHP Pond near the dip-net jetty.

Come along and watch (and listen to) the free for all at feeding time.

Other pond birds like the Pacific Black Duck, Eurasian Coots and Purple Swamp Hens join in too.

The number of birds being fed varies with the seasons.

They are fed a mixture of grains – Sorghum, layer pellets and wheat.

They are never fed bread as it is like junk food to birds.

Reptile Encounters

On Saturdays and Sundays at 12.30 pm a selection of reptiles from the tanks in the Visitors Centre are featured in a Reptile Encounter. Come along and get up close to some of our resident reptiles like Timmy Turtle, Little Joe the Croc or Lulu, the python. The presentation last approximately 30 minutes.

Reptile Encounters are also held during school holidays – check on the website or ask Reception for dates and times.

Preschools, schools, OOSH groups, nursing homes and other groups can include a Reptile Encounter in their visit to the Wetlands or book a Wetlands on Wheels visit where we bring the reptiles to you. There is a fee for these services.
Booking Enquiry Form – coming soon.

A Reptile Encounter can also be included in a Birthday Party Booking.
