Burrima Boardwalk - Macquarie Marshes

Point Of Interest

5 from 3 users

Description

A window in the Marshes. Accessible for registered visitors. Constructed walkway on private land through a section of the Macquarie Marshes. The walkway is just above the ground and water and meanders around for approximately 2 km through red river gum forest and mixed marsh vegetation with a sweeping view for kilometres over the northern reedbed of the Macquarie Marshes. The site is recovering from a wildfire in 2019 and looking great from rain in autumn 2020 and inundation from outflow of the Macquarie River. Currently receiving releases of environmental water which will improve the condition of the area. A great opportunity to experience Macquarie Marshes up close. Abundance of birds and wildlife to be seen and heard. Aquatic vegetation beginning to thrive with warmer weather in spring. 'Kakadu of the south'. A must see for anyone interested in seeing the Marshes. 128km on the Carinda Roa, north of Warren NSW. Allow 1 to 2 hours to wander and explore. 77 Water bird species. Dogs are not permitted. No camping or overnight parking allowed. You must book in advance.

A lovely stroll through the marshlands. Well worth the entry fee.

The boardwalk is very well done and we enjoyed our visit. Unfortunately we saw little bird or aquatic life on the walk but heaps on the roadside. We did however, see a couple of snakes sunning themselves!

Well worth the visit to see transformation from grazing land back to acres of marshes, wetlands, birdlife, frogs and fish. Large parking area, picnic facilities, toilets, and wheelchair accessible. We will be back to enjoy this unique area.
