Take A Walk On The Boardwalk & See Who You Can Spot!

Our beautiful boardwalk is now complete and open to the public!

This naturally occurring basin fills and empties in line with seasonal rainfall; leaving it full and flowing after winter's rains, and a dry bowl in the summer. 

Adjacent to the Little Para River and as part of the wider Salisbury area, there are plenty of different species of wildlife you might be lucky enough to see or encounter from your new tranquil boardwalk platform. While some are much more likely occurrences than others, try your luck and see how many you can spot on your travels on and around the Boardwalk!
