Bool Lagoon is one of the largest and most diverse fresh­wa­ter lagoon sys­tems in south­ern Aus­tralia. This sea­son­al wet­land is home to a wide range of wildlife and pro­vides essen­tial drought refuge for many rare and endan­gered bird species.

Take a dri­ve to the top of Big Hill to see just how big these wet­lands real­ly are. The extend­ed dri­ve via Bool Lagoon and Moy­hall Roads to Lit­tle Bool Lagoon is also worth the effort. The open water of Lit­tle Bool Lagoon is a pop­u­lar venue for many waterbirds.

The board­walk, extend­ing 500 metres over the wet­lands, gives you the feel­ing of walk­ing on water. Brol­gas, com­mon­ly asso­ci­at­ed with north­ern Aus­tralia, are per­haps the most spec­tac­u­lar of the 150 species of birds that vis­it this area. Enjoy the mag­nif­i­cent scenery and lis­ten care­ful­ly for the crea­tures of the wet­lands, espe­cial­ly the insects and frogs.

Hacks Lagoon Con­ser­va­tion Park adjoins the main basin of Bool Lagoon Game Reserve. Whether you are a bird­watch­er, a lover of open space, or mere­ly wish to escape the hus­tle and bus­tle of mod­ern life, Hacks Lagoon offers anoth­er wet­land habi­tat to explore.
