Good easy walk, enjoyed it and will explore more the next time. Perfect for all age groups without any strain.

Comments for the first timers, there are two entrance to the walking loopand there are no proper parking marked for cars. There are no signs on the tracks, if you do get lost :-), follow your instincts OR else download the GPX files and load on a GPX enabled App on your phone. Possible track a new one if you happen to explore a different track.

A pretty walk, quite simple.

A beautiful lagoon with heaps of bird life and interesting trees. Loved the boardwalk sections. The heavy rain last week flooded short sections of the southern and upper western parts of the loop. These sections are still passable, the water is ~20cm high. It will probably take a couple of weeks for the water levels to recede. The track is not clearly defined nor signed in some parts so make sure you bring a GPS or phone with you.
