Highly recommended, we were so impressed with our late afternoon walk through we went again the following morning for the 6am opening. This meant a 4:30am start and camp pack up at Corinda. Well worth it spotting Nankeen Night Herons eating frogs and plenty of birds .. Grebes with young, Woodland swallows, the observation tower was a fantastic view over the different vegetation zones. Loved the info boards and facilities were available at the start of the track. The online contact was excellent (thx David) & took time to explain what we saw …a narrow nosed planigale. So much beauty with the Marshes rich with life and water. A must see ….

This is what we hoped to see in the Macquarie Marshes area. Beautifully presented boardwalk meandering through the peaceful wetlands. Much birdlife but not seen all that close. Ease make sure you register to get access code well before you reach the area as you may not have any connectivity. Watch for signage - small brown sign pointing Burrima. Use GPS coordinates if you can.

Thanks to the owners for offering up this area to public access.

Having worked on Borah Creek, the Macquarie Marshes, as a Field Technician, and still working in aquatic habitats, once I saw the flyer for Burrima it became a MUST SEE on the bucket list.

I was not disappointed - from every point of view this is an incredible feature that the landowners of the Macquarie Marshes have constructed. This Project has not only been "done". It has been extraordinarily well constructed so that it will last for a long long time.

The basic aim to allow people to get a taste of the beauty in places that are "off the map" but part of our environment has been achieved. I knew how that area functioned but talking to a member of the committee I was told that there is still work in progress regarding information signs etc. which will make it even more meaningful to us all.

This area is totally unspoilt - Borah Creek is an unregulated river wending its way through a forest of Murray River Redgums, other species of trees, water plants, which were in bloom and areas of reed beds which were full of bird life ( you have to be quick with the camera or prepared to sit and wait). There is this wonderful look out - from which you can see the extent of the surrounding area - flat and vast.

There has been an incredible amount of thought and hours of hard work put into this venture to introduce everyone to one of the unique areas of Australia and I would recommend it to anyone that has an interest in the environment.

It is necessary to obtain the number to key into the gate to access this very well maintained boardwalk. I was alone and obviously the $25 would be more economical if more than one in the car. The board walk is well maintained . The exposture is mostly to the smaller birds, there are no views over open water where brolga and black necked stork would be more likely to be observed. I enjoyed my visit

Absolutely loved it. Leesa below must have been to a different place than me, because I visited Burrima in October 2020 and had a wonderful time. Can't wait to go again. The owners/administrators of the boardwalk are very friendly and helpful. They have done a fantastic job of regenerating the property. The birds are a little skittish, and it was difficult to get close to them for photography. They are wild birds after all, not used to humans. So take a long lens and a tripod if you want to do photography. But I found more to see at Burrima than the viewing platform at Quambone. Only issue I had - which has nothing to do with Burrima - is that the campsite nearby had closed down (Willie Retreat - owners retired) so that I had to stay in Carinda. Would be great if someone could revitalise that campsite also.

Great to visit the Macquarie marshes today via the Burrima boardwalk. Fantastic place, lots of birds around, flying over, lots of bird sounds and a few birds. Fascinating to see the photos of the place before re-generation. Lots of water and plant life. Definitely worth a visit

We found it quite challenging to find reliable information on accessing the Macquarie Marshes to view bird life. We found the Windows to the Wetlands centre in Warren to be most helpful.

An excellent access point is the Burrima Boardwalk, just off the Warren-Carinda Road, about 130 km north of Warren. We did a day trip from Warren to this site and spent some hours enjoying the beautiful access to the wetland.

The time of our visit was not great for birds but we now have a good sense of where to go when we next visit during peak season. The advantage of this boardwalk is that it is mostly accessible even when it has been raining. The $25 per car entry fee is well worth it for what you get.

Earlier Trip Advisor posts provide more detail.

Highly recommend!

This Boardwalk is a major and fascinating construction that puts you amongst the taller foliage but above the water, which was plentiful when we visited in April. Perfect for people with mobility challenges, my travelling companion with dodgy knees completed this easily much to her delight. Terrific facilities among shade trees at the beginning of the walk that you return to at the end.

The Marshes themselves we found magical, about a gazillion frogs going by the chorus, fish and birds, a very fast tortoise, a black pig and several startled kangas, and new sights around every corner. But not a mozzie or fly. The silence broken by wind swishing the reeds and birds calling, frogs gurgling.

Been fascinated by these Marshes since forever, this is a great way of safely experiencing them.

The road is a bit of a challenge but we were towing a van, it becomes single lane, and then gravel, but we reckoned it was well worth taking the time.
