I walk my dogs almost every day at the Edithvale wetlands and surrounding parks. It's an excellent area, green and lush. Lately there has been an increase in birdlife, especially the rosellas and black swans. My favorite time to visit are those crisp, misty, winter...More

Unfortunately, when I visited three different times it was closed each time. The location looks like a great discovery centre which isn't what many people want when they are looking to see and photograph birds. The viewing area appears to be far too far away...More

Although I am not into birdwatching, I am familiar with the area and have watched as a brand new bird hide has been established, far outweighing the small boxes which were available previously. There are several varieties of birds to discover

Nature at its best. Lovely wildlife, bird life, and a new bike / pedestrian path to wander along. Love it.

These wetlands are about 30km from Melbourne to the southeast (but still within the sprawling suburbs.) At first glance they are unprepossessing, being merely a swampy area. However ornithologists regurlarly see between 50 and 70 species of bords, such as ibis, egrets, heron and shearwaters....More
