The wetlands of Gunbower Island support 24 reptile species, a variety of fish and approximately 200 plant species. Photographers keen to capture a dynamic natural environment can have it all. All year round you can shoot glorious late-afternoon photos, when the dappled light is just right.
Kangaroos and emus are very common throughout the many forests. There are koalas too, but you’ll need to look carefully. Campers will almost certainly hear calls from mopoke and barking owls, a variety of frogs, and a range of woodland and water birds. A Mallee sunset while camping on the banks of the Avoca River at Quambatook is a free light show!
