On Layman Road just over 10mins from Busselton. This is one of the biggest wetland systems in Western Australia. It is also listed by the Ramsar Convention as a wetland of international importance. There is over 30,000 waterbirds that visit this wetland. The entrance is a little tricky to find, so take it slow. The bird hide is a short 400m walk from the car park. At the car park there are two picnic tables and an information bay. Along the track there is also a seat where you can take a rest if required. Once you get closer to the bird hide you can stop and look through 3 x observation windows. Then there are lots of windows in the bird hide itself. There is also more information and benches in the bird hide but the info is a little hard to read as it is quite dark inside. Just FYI there is mention of mosquitos when you get there, Also here is the 1.5km possum spotting trail loop.
