Stop to feed the locals, the ducks and geese, are never too far away to say "G'day" . . . duck
style !

Dusk and dawn are great times to take a quite moment to hear the bird song (or screech!) of the Australian native birdlife in the park. Birds often found in the park include: Galahs, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Red Rump Parrots and a whole variety of finches and small wrens (including the Willy Wagtail.)

A short leisurely stroll around the lake will allow you to identify and learn of 18 different species of Outback Trees. At the top end of the park learn of the desperate measures our early settlers took to break drought using the now infamous Steiger Vortex Rainmaking Guns.
