Wetland Tours and Trails

The 2km of well maintained trails incorporate a specially constructed bird hide where visitors can stop to watch some of the 160 species recorded at the wetlands. There are also 20 species of water plants, plus fish, frogs, long-necked tortoises, snakes and lizards inhabiting the Greenfields Wetlands.

Self guided tours

The self guided tour takes approximately 40 to 60 minutes to complete. Interpretive signage along the trails provides details of the rich and diverse wildlife.

The wetland trail is accessible from 8.30am till 3.30pm daily. An access token to enter the wetland trail can be collected from the Watershed Cafe by providing photo identification and a $20 refundable deposit. Please check the Watershed Cafe website to confirm opening hours on public holidays.
