Back towards Mathoura, take the Forest Drive and stop off at the Reed Beds Bird Hide which features a raised boardwalk, signage, and interactive information regarding the spectacular birds in this area. If you’re quiet, you might be lucky to see pelicans, kingfishers, yellow rosellas, ibis, spoonbills, superb wrens, swans, cormorants, and ducks in the wetlands here.
Just a minute up Millewa Road and you’ll be at the Edward River, another lovely spot to kayak, fish or just relax by the river. It’s dog-friendly too, if you brought your four-legged friend along for the ride.
Onwards or back?
From here, you can decide whether to head back to Echuca Moama on the Cobb Highway, or continue north towards Deniliquin and beyond on our Edward River Trail.
