|Rotamah Island was also once cleared for grazing, and became part of the Lakes National Park in 1978. It has prolific birdlife: more than 190 species have been recorded on the island, including emus, grebes, cormorants, pelicans, rosellas, robins, and white bellied sea eagles. Native wildlife includes eastern grey kangaroos, swamp wallabies, possums, echidnas, wombats and bats. And from August to November there's a spectacular show of wildflowers.|
To enjoy all of this, there is an excellent walking track through to the ocean beach, with two bird hides along the way. There is also a much longer walking track to Ocean Grange.
In a large cleared area, there are wood fired barbecues. Simply pack up your supplies and walk down the jetty to the picnic tables, and cook to an audience of kangaroos with the back drop of a magnificent sunset.
