Chinamans Island Nature Reserve is a great track for a gentle walk, jog or bike on the southern shores of Lake Mulwala. This well-graded walking track is suitable for wheelchairs and is accessible in all weather.
Once cleared woodland, is now extensively replanted with plants native to the area. It is now home for in excess of sixty species of native birds. A feature of Chinamans Island is a relatively large wetland with well developed aquatic vegetation. The wetland provides a home for many species of waterbird including rails, crakes and bitterns. The area is also home for species such as platypus, water rates and yellow-bellied water skinks. The reserve can be divided into several zones each supporting a different range of flora and fauna. Quiet contemplation or observation of birdlife or appreciation of views can be enjoyed from some seats located along the track.
A rotunda provides shade with picnic table and seats and is a lovely spot to meet friends for a picnic, read a book or simply observe birds and nature. Chinaman's Island Nature Track is always a fantastic photo op.
Dogs on leash are allowed on the Island with dog litter bags provided at each entry.
