The Spoonbill Trail

About This Location

The Spoonbill trail is also tidal and algae may be present, therefore canoe only in winter and spring after good rains. The shallow lakes appeal to canoeists who like a remote and easily accessed trail. Samphire flats, low bush, trees, narrow linkages between the lakes also give the paddler an exploratory feeling. The only reliable comfort or rest sites are those shown on the guide map.

Yellow spoonbills when feeding constantly move their heads from side to side as though vacuuming the shallow fringes and beds as they filter and consume water insects, crustaceans, fish and mollusks.
The birds on this trail include the ones from Trail 3 and more, including musk ducks, avocets, ospreys, pelicans and the occasional white breasted sea eagle.
