Beautiful Walk with the waders at Shellgrit Creek

The arrival of the waders is one of the most anticipated events for Mackay's bird and nature lovers!

Waders include species such as oystercatchers, curlews, dotterels and sand plovers. These little shorebirds follow the warmer weather by migrating annually between Australia and countries as far away as Siberia, China and Japan! After their incredible journey to Mackay, these birds spend the next 6 months (Oct - Mar) on our coasts, resting and feeding. 

To welcome the waders, we are excited to be holding a Beautiful Walk at Shellgrit Creek on Sunday 21 October. Joining us will be BirdLife Mackay to help with bird identification and talk to us about their behavior and migration paths. 

Join us for this opportunity to see the waders up close, get outdoors and enjoy it with other like-minded people!

Bookings are essential to secure your spot!
