Our beaches are world-class. And so are our wetlands! Lake Warden and Lake Gore are Esperance wetlands listed under the Ramsar Convention, which recognises water bodies of international significance. Both these lakes, and the smaller lakes within their catchment, are habitat for our iconic Black Swan and the endangered Hooded Plover – a small coastal bird that forages on insects and water bugs.

With school holidays here, South Coast Natural Resource Management have organised the perfect outdoor activity to learn more about our feathered friends and their food. Throughout April, you can join guided walks around Lake Wheatfield, sample some waterbugs, and discover the cultural heritage and bird diversity of the Esperance area. This exciting opportunity will be led by Dabungool Cultural Experiences and supported by the Esperance Bird Observers Group, through generous funding from the National Landcare Program.

Places on these free guided tours are limited, so book your place soon!
