Bool Lagoon is one of the largest and most diverse freshwater lagoon systems in southern Australia. This seasonal wetland is home to a wide range of wildlife and provides essential drought refuge for many rare and endangered bird species.
Take a drive to the top of Big Hill to see just how big these wetlands really are. The extended drive via Bool Lagoon and Moyhall Roads to Little Bool Lagoon is also worth the effort. The open water of Little Bool Lagoon is a popular venue for many waterbirds.
The boardwalk, extending 500 metres over the wetlands, gives you the feeling of walking on water. Brolgas, commonly associated with northern Australia, are perhaps the most spectacular of the 150 species of birds that visit this area. Enjoy the magnificent scenery and listen carefully for the creatures of the wetlands, especially the insects and frogs.
Hacks Lagoon Conservation Park adjoins the main basin of Bool Lagoon Game Reserve. Whether you are a birdwatcher, a lover of open space, or merely wish to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life, Hacks Lagoon offers another wetland habitat to explore.
Bool Lagoon Game Reserve's camping area is a bird-lover's paradise. Campers are most welcome - waking to the sounds of a wetland at dawn is not to be missed. Set up camp and experience the sheer number of birds that flock to the lagoon to seek refuge from the drought.
