“Nice Walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This walk would take a couple of hours, at least, and includes wetland hides and a chance to see a few of the local bird-life. There is a list of some of the most recent sightings.

“A lovely way for us to end the day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

This was brilliant, the wholly constructed walkway through the reed beds and over the river gives you a wonderful perspective that would otherwise not be possible. The wildlife abounds. The island was very interesting, an insight into the past. I am glad it has been preserved.

It was just okay, but glad that I have been here. A good walk with not that much of interest but good exercise!

“A beautiful place to spend a great, healthy few hours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

The visitor's centre is really well done, but the best part is the walk out to the island and back. Take a picnic - there are lots of nice spots to enjoy it.
Definitely worth grabbing the orientation sheet at the Centre to take on your walk; has some really interesting bits and pieces of info of geographic, cultural and historical significance to make sense of what you'll see.
There are also a few geocaches there, so a great way to introduce yourself to this 'treasure hunting' sport/past-time if you're up for experiencing a new adventure!
