Meeting by the boat ramp at Fishermans Paradise, the route for this guided walk includes riverside, bush, village tracks and streets. You'll hear stories of natural environment, flora and fauna (and some surprising local history!) as we wander along the rivers edge with binoculars handy for a closer look at the abundant birdlife. It's likely we'll also see kangaroos and eastern water dragons (and fish jumping in the river). Then, via a track through the bush and over a boardwalk, we visit a favourite fishing spot with fabulous views over the river, ideal for photos reflecting the bush in the afternoon light. Taking a different track from the rivers edge, we'll then wander through the village. Bird life is abundant everywhere in Fishermans Paradise so keep your camera and binoculars handy. Coming back to the rivers edge, we follow a track along the riverside with stunning river vistas as we head back to the boat ramp.
I’m co-founder of Kotahi Tourism and live in Fishermans Paradise. I've developed and guided (award winning!) tours in both Australia and New Zealand, and love sharing our unique local environment with visitors. I'm generally joined on these walks by my husband Hohepa. We're both from NZ and met when we were working at Te Papa - the Museum of NZ. We've lived in Australia since 2001, initially in Sydney where I managed The Rocks Discovery Museum and Sydney Learning Adventures before we made a 'tree & sea' change to the beautiful NSW South Coast & started Kotahi Tourism in 2013.
Fishermans Paradise boat ramp - the meeting place for this guided walk. Conjola and Bunnair Creeks - flowing into Lake Conjola, these lovely 'creeks' are more like rivers with adjacent wetlands. The tracks we follow offer great opportunities for bird-watching, including endangered and vulnerable species. Fishermans Paradise village - you'll see abundant wildlife in the gardens and streets of the village.
