Goolwa Birdhide

Goolwa Bird Hide

A very well constructed and maintained bird hide situated on Barrage Road Goolwa a short distance from the Goolwa barrage. It is a wooden hide, set low amongst surrounding reeds looking into a small lagoon on the Murray River. It was a project supported by the Department of Tourism, local Council and Signal Point. The hide was built, funded, and constructed by the Lions Club of Goolwa in July 1987.

The hide is popular with bird watchers and photographers from all parts of Australia and overseas. It is open from 8.00am till 5.00pm, has wheelchair access and bench seating inside. The site has countless species of resident birds and many visiting migratory birds depending on the season.
