Wetland Circuit Trail (Braeside Park)

Braeside Park Wetlands Circuit trail provides visitors with a number of wetlands viewing opportunities and to observe the many varied bird species that reside in the park.

The trail travels through open Red Gum and Manna Gum bushland area to the north east of the wetlands, with more grassy vegetation along the south western edge. This trail has two different surface components including granitic sand and mown grass. The grass portion is an uneven surface and can become slippery and wet during the winter period of the year.

The edges of the wetlands have shallow water and slippery surfaces. Snakes live in and around the wetlands and are often observed through the warmer months.

Wetland Circuit is a Grade 3, 3km trail

Park Gates are open from dawn to dusk year round. Pedestrian access is 24 hours.
There is a 24-hour car park at the Red Gum Picnic Area entrance from Governor Road.
