A delightfully peaceful place and as I am disabled I can drive to near some hides - very good. Hides are basic but serve their purpose and have benches.

Beautiful reserve. Amazing amount of wildlife to be seen. The Avalon hide is a bit of a trek but the walk there is full of wonderful wildlife and is a must to do.
