Longneck Lagoon Walking Track

Natural Attractions

Longneck Lagoon walking track, a track which hugs banks of the small permanent freshwater wetland, has one very big attraction: birds. Over 140 species have been recorded at the park, with at least 42 species using the wetland on a regular basis (seven of which are protected by international treaty). Herons and egrets swoop overhead.

Surrounded by pleasant forest and offering a tranquil place perfect for walking with children, Longneck Lagoon walking track lets visitors engage with the area’s wildlife both safely and respectfully. Bring your camera and binoculars: as you walk beside the water, expect to see ducks, grebes, spoonbills and cormorants. There are plenty of good vantage points on this easy four kilometre walk. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the undergrowth too: some birds live down below in a thorn bush native to the area.

An education centre elaborates on the significance of Longneck Lagoon, but to extend your visit even further, head to the southern precinct of the park to explore Scheyville Camp precinct stop here for a picnic continue along Migrant Heritage walk.
