Walks at Serendip Sanctuary

Serendip Sanctuary

See kangaroos, wallabies, emus and a huge variety of birdlife in their natural habitat as you explore the walks at Serendip Sanctuary.

There are four interconnecting trails throughout the sanctuary, all within walking distance from the Information Centre. Each trail is no longer than 2km return.

The main walking track, leads you through the predator-proof fenced area,where native birds are free to roam and nest safely away from predators. To ensure their well-being is protected, touching or feeding animals is not permitted.

The walk provides you with some outstanding opportunities for birdwatching from viewing areas and bird hides.

You may be treated to Whistling Kites soaring high overhead, magnificent Yellow-billed Spoonbills wading through the shallow water, emus wandering across Lake Serendip, or Cape Barren geese waddling along the tracks.

Specially designed bird hides enable you to see some of the 150 species of birds that breed at, or visit, Serendip Sanctuary.
