Commencing at the Heyfield Information Centre, follow the tracks around your choice of four walks.
See the graceful water birds, and the unique water plants which rely on the rich, moist beds of minerals available in the wetlands mud.
Admire the wonderful mixture of wetland aromas with a hint of eucalypt that is particularly prominent just before rain.
The wetlands are a haven for various frog and bird species. Parrots and water birds can be observed close up in their breeding boxes. The walks are easy with well formed tracks, only occasional steps and no experience is required to complete.
There are four walks to choose from:
- Sero Walk; 660 metres, 12-15 mins return
- Lathams Snipe Walk; 680 metres, 15 mins return
- Woodlands Walk; 990 metres, 25 mins return
- Marsh Frog Walk; 630 metres, 12-15 mins return
An easy walk with well formed tracks.
At then end of your walk, check out the country town of Heyfield - well worth a visit.
The Wetlands Information Centre is the home of the Neville-Smith Timber Industries display and has a wide range of souvenirs.
Once the site of the Heyfield racecourse, the Wetlands are now the home to a number of different species of bird and animal life.
