Duck from the birds
Just a short walk from the Esplanade at Redcliffe is the oddly named Humpybong Creek Duck Pond. It's a grate haven for a variety of birdlife and a great place to wander along the paths idenifying the various feathered locals.



Where did the strange name of Humpybong come from? Read about it here.

Birds on the Lake


How many different birds can be found on the lake? Sounds like a fun game for the family to play. See if you can identify the birds that can be seen on the water, on the lawn or in the trees?





If you a family member or friend confined to a wheelchair, there's a great walk around the lake with a bridge too, so it makes a nice trip. You will be able to see all the strange (bottle) trees, the garden and the birds. Pleasant, quiet, easy.






There are signs around asking visitors to not feed the birds, but on my visit, I saw quite a few families doing so. There are apparent risks to some of the birds - perhaps just don't overfeed them.
