Breakfast with the Birds

The next event celebrating the 40th anniversary of our Park is on Sunday July 1st – “Breakfast with the Birds” is a lyrebird count at dawn. You’ll need to be at the Moonlight Creek Picnic Area by 6.45!!

The cold is bracing but the special atmospherics in the bush at dawn is a delightful experience.

Those who join us will be divided into teams to set up at one of a number of points around the main picnic area to locate calls from Lyrebirds – later compiled to identify the number of unique birds.

The count will be followed by a BBQ breakfast as the sun comes up over the ridges. Limited numbers so bookings at mtworthfriends@gmail.com are essential. A $5 donation to cover costs will be charged on the day.

If there is heavy rain the event will be cancelled.
