We will meet at the wetland at 7:30 am in the carpark “Sports Rd, Bli Bli”

In the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary at Bli Bli, we can explore wet and dry eucalypt forests, rainforest, melaleuca forest, casuarina woodland, salt marsh and mangroves. We can watch over 200 different types of birds, as well as crabs, butterflies and other animals that make the wetlands their home.

Within this wetland, life thrives in land on the edge of the sea, flooded by freshwater and salty tides. One of south east Queensland’s largest groups of Mangrove Ferns grow in these wetlands.

The fiddler crab, with its distinct large orange pincer claw, is the logo for the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary support group.

There will be many photographic opportunities, there is a bird hide, the crabs are at our feet, just off the boardwalk.

Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary is home to many mosquitos. Wear clothing that covers you and bring insect repellent.

Lunch … Take your own,  or we will find a cafe close by.
