Byron Bay Wetlands
Welcome to the Byron Wetlands
The Byron Wetlands is within the traditional country of the Bundjalung (Arakwal) people of Byron Bay. These wetlands are constructed wetlands and form part of the 100 ha Byron Integrated Management Reserve – an award-winning example of how good resource management can minimise the impact of the sewage treatment plant on the surrounding ecosystems and create a wonderful, natural habitat for the support of local flora and fauna diversity.
The wetlands are a great place to bird watch when visiting Byron with more than 227 species spotted. Habitats and seasons will define where you are likely to see the birds and a variety of water levels provide for different types of waterbirds and shorebirds.
If you are a visitor to the Byron Shire, please contact our office on 6685 9300 and we can arrange for a visitor's tag.
Remember, dress appropriately and bring sunscreen and a hat. A pair of binoculars and a good field guide of Australian birds will enhance your visit.
