Things to do and see

It’s a great time to get out and about in nature. Use the weekend as an excuse to get as much nature play in as you can!

There are lots of exciting and beautiful places to explore in Tuggerah Lakes catchment area.

Discover the birds

Visit Tacoma and Tacoma South and take a picnic at one of the beautiful reserves. These reserves provide habitat for bush birds, plenty of waterbirds in the lake such as Black Swans and birds of prey such as White-breasted Sea Eagles. Peaceful walking tracks out to the point on north and south sides, and at Tacoma near Don Small Oval. When you are there visit the saltmarsh habitat and see the work being undertaken to rehabilitate this important foreshore community.

They are hanging out in the trees and shrubs that surround our lakes, rivers and creeks. Take a walk in your local place and see who lives here.
