Start 8:30 am
Sandy Camp Wetlands, Wynnum  West  
Kathy Clark                        Rescheduled Excursion

The walk is easy flat walking on tracks. As there is usually so much to see we will take our time. This site has lagoons, grassed areas as well as some bush. A large variety of birds love it here and so do birdwatchers and photographers. The species count is 219 but don't expect to see all these! Unusual birds do turn up here such as the White-fronted Honeyeater earlier this year. This species is normally found a long way west and was observed at Binya National Park on the NATs camp there in 2018.
For those who have the time, afterwards we will drive to Whale Park on Wynnum foreshore. So, bring a chair and morning tea or you can purchase coffee across the road.
Expect to take about 2.5 to 3 hours and please carry water, a snack, as well as insect repellant. Don't forget your binoculars and camera. There are no facilities here.

Attendance is limited to 20 people. For this reason, all attendees must register via email to excursion@qnc.org.au at least 24 hours prior to commencement.

They range in duration from short, half-day local trips through week-end camps to longer excursions lasting from one to two weeks in more remote locations. Visitors are welcome on short excursions.
