Relaxing boat trip through the waterways. Children enjoyed spotting the different birds species. Was surprised to find out that you can hop on / hop off at the nearby shopping centre, should you wish... Something different to do with the family during school holidays

Hidden in the jungle of housing complexes,this sanctuary come as a bit of a surprise.Well kept,one meanders through pathways along waterways and dry bush. Certainly an interesting spot to visit, to watch mainly waterbirds.The hides are well maintained and provide excellent viewing.

Such a lovely place to visit on a sunny day. Very unexpected amongst the Century City Towers. A nice place to watch birds and 'get lost' on wooden walkways.

Thoroughly enjoyed this island and especially the boat ride. The guides are well informed and the number of birds you see is a big bonus :)
