Access for people with disabilities:

Information:
Enjoy a relaxing breakfast waterside at Landing Lights wetland and spot some of our feathered neighbours.

Landing Lights Wetland located at Spring Street, Banksia is one of Council's most environmentally significant natural areas. The site contains some of the last remaining saline wetlands on the Cooks River and includes vegetation identified as threatened under NSW legislation (salt-marsh).

Migratory birds from as far away as Siberia visit Landing Lights during the warmer months to feed and fatten up before returning to the Northern Hemisphere to breed. The wetland also provides potential habitat to a number of threatened Australian coastal bird species.

Local bird experts will be on hand at this breakfast to point out the various species and tell the amazing migration story of birds who visit the local area. There will also be the opportunity to plants some native plants to help Council restore and protect this significant spot.

While we'll have a couple of scopes set up for viewing, you will have a much better experience if you can bring your own set of binoculars as well. You should also bring a hat, water, sunscreen and wear comfortable clothing and shoes appropriate for walking. Coffee, tea and a snack will be provided.
