It was a dusty corrugated track in but worthwhile. Bird hide quite spacious with seating and plenty of water birds both left and right of the hide.

Neither my mate nor myself are birders but we visited here and I quickly went back to the car to get 2 pairs of Binocs and my iPad with an Australian Bird Book app. It was fantastic to be able to see so many birds...More

Don't miss seeing the sunset over the lagoon, whether you are a bird watcher or not! This is a magic place with abundant water birds. The track is a little rough from the main road but can be easily managed without 4WD.

though still in the rainy season, making some roads impassible, we rented a 4 wheel drive Mitsubishi, which served us well in the Billabong. A cacaphony of sound, with an endless stretch of waterlilies in bloom, and bird movement everywhere. 16 kms. from Wyndham.

There were so many birds around and we watched a huge saltwater crocodile for quite a while, as it rested on the bank. A true oasis in the middle of nowhere.
