If you love birds, this is an experience. They are free to fly off and come back. Wonderful to see them in a free environment.

Very chilled and relaxing spot in Montaque. The view is not huge but beautiful. Birds nest hanging everywhere and love locks on the side walk.♡

Not a great variety of birds in June. A nice easy accessible hide and a good place to practice your photography skills. An extra branch or two nearer to the hide would be wonderful. The dam has a wonderful history.

Enjoyed a few hours relaxing and watching the birds. You are close up to the birds so you can get very good images. I visited when there were a few chicks in the nests so the parents were quite busy feeding.
