This body of water was once a significant source of food and water for the Wilman people of the region, attracting birdlife, wildlife, fish and yabbies.
Now a saltwater lake due to land clearing, the lake is no less spectacular when full, attracting black swans and a multitude of birdlife. As you will discover on this tour, the spiritual and cultural connections that the region’s first people share with this place are still very much alive.
