Starting from Little Llangothlin picnic and parking area this circuit walk leads around the lagoon and surrounding Ramsar-listed (one of the few) wetlands. Look out for black swans and nomadic pelicans or brown falcons and white-breasted sea eagles above you. Let us begin by acknowledging the Gumbaynggirr & Anaiwan people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
