“Not much there”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We went in the summer, so there were not too many birds and the pond was mostly dried up. If you have seen one 'dry hole' you have seen them all.

“Good Place to See Boobie, From Second Floor Deck”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The Second Floor Deck is always open, even if the Visitors Center has very limited hours. From there you can see a half dozen bird species.

“Scary”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We went out on bikes from southern cross resort around 4 pm and met our diving guide with his girlfriend who offer this advise as he left don't stay too long the bugs come out around 5 PM the place seems otherworldly but is fun to walk out on boardwalk. We got on our bikes as it was getting dark 5 pm and then as we rode back the trees and bushes seemed to start buzzing and the bugs started coming we pulled in the the club just as they stared biting

“Lovely place and so helpful”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Loved the displays that help you familiarise with the flora and fauna and the very helpful staff/volunteers. You can also use the viewing platform at any time even when the indoor part is closed.
