Discovery Walk – Barker Inlet Wetlands

12/11/2023 @ 9:00 am 10:30 am ACDT

Come and join Port Environment Centre at Barker Inlet Wetlands.

Discovery Walks are designed to connect you with nature and community and are offered by Port Environment Centre.

We invite you to join us on a bird watching walk through Barker Inlet Wetlands to discover the rich bird life and fauna who call this place home. We’ll be joined by a local bird monitoring citizen scientist ready to share his knowledge of the local birds.

This walk is approx. 2-3km over a 90 min period and a basic level of fitness is needed. There will be many opportunities to stop, watch, listen and learn. Walking surfaces include formed and unformed paths over soil, boardwalk and mown grass.

Date: Sunday 12 November

Meet spot: Magazine Road, Dry Creek – to the north of the intersection with Henschke Street. Please access this section of Magazine Road from Cormack Road. See the exact meeting point here
