Visit the Reserve

In return for the Friends manning the visitor centre and collecting entry permit money on behalf of the Reserve, a percentage of the money is returned to us as a donation, so simply by visiting the Reserve you will be boosting our funds.


We rely very much on our volunteers to man the Visitor Centre and the Herons Rest Café, and to assist in various events throughout the year.
