Toowoomba Water Bird Habitat

Toowoomba, Toowoomba Area

Nestled into suburban Rangeville, Toowoomba Waterbird Habitat is a beautiful and diverse wetland spread over 7.6 hectares (19 acres). Environmental diversity is essential if the habitat is to attract a variety of waterbirds. Deep and shallow lakes, areas of reeds, mud-banks, islands and grassy areas provide feeding, roosting and nesting conditions for birds including Ibis, Dusky Moorhens, Black Cormorants, Plumed Whistling Ducks and Purple Swamp Hens.

More than 2000 shrubs and trees attract Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Lorikeets, Rosellas, Kookaburras and other native birds. All of the plants are Australian species appropriate to the locality. Perimeter plantings help screen the habitat from the surrounding roads and houses, creating a peaceful atmosphere within.

Waterbird habitats are characteristically places of light and open spaces, so large areas of grassland have been retained. You can see birds such as Maned Wood Duck and Straw-necked Ibis which feed mainly on these grasslands.
