This area is just so beautiful . No matter wether there is water or not there is always some form of wild life. It's not a quick drive thru. You will want to stay with binoculars or your camera. Shame on you if you don't go look see.

This is a nature reserve in a river flood plain near the town of Wyndam. A bird blind overlooking an area of permanent water provides excellent opportunities for viewing a good assortment of birds including water birds. Near the entrance there are interpretive posters with useful information about the area and its importance to both local and migratory birds. There... More

This is another must visit. The billabong bird hide is really well done. We saw all manner of wildlife here.

Knocking off as many nature parks during our time in Kununurra and Wyndham, we stopped in at Parry Lagoons Nature Preserve on our way up to Wyndham, and although it was a bit drier than I had anticipated, there were still thousands of birds to see, flying around, doodying from above and we were able to get a few good...

We went late afternoon and enjoyed about half an hour in the bird hide, taking photos. I've been spotting birds since I was a kid, so I was in my element up north seeing all these new species to me. SO excited to see my first Brolga, just wish it was closer. Friends saw a saltwater croc here too, but... More

I like to photograph birds so the bird hide didn't offer birds up close. But, I did still enjoy it because it did showcase quite a large number of bird species. The best part of the drive in was photographing some young finches at the Information Car Park and discovering after I arrived home that they were Juvenile Gouldian Finches.... More

If you love birds - this place is your paradise! Go early morning or late afternoon when birds most active. In winter months, any time is good too.

Caravan Park and accommodation was all within a terribly dry region. Unfortunately lagoon is almost dry thus no bird life. Cafe served most enjoyable meals. Would love to return when the grass was green and the lagoon full. Nearby Marlgu Billabong was outstanding and had thousands of birds.

This is a picturesque nature reserve with a good hide to watch whatever there is. It is possible to drive in along one road and out on another, we would not advise that because the southern route out could take you off road for 70+ kms.

There is a hide / canopy out in the lagoon, and for bird watchers there was plenty of choice, but much better early., we were told. There were three salties on the beach about 300 metres away , small dirt roads off the Wyndham road, take the first exit and travel via the abandoned telegraph station overlooking the lagoon, the...
