Lakes & Wetlands

West Wimmera has an incredible 25% of Victoria's individual wetlands.

You may catch a glimpse of endangered birds such as the Brolga, Freckled Ducks as well as migratory birds during their travels from far flung parts of the world. Residents and visitors alike enjoy the wetlands for many recreational pursuits, such as camping, water-skiing, bird watching, fishing and yabbying.

Wetlands are located on:

  • private land under the jurisdiction of the Department of Environment and Primary Industries
  • public land under the control of Department of Environment and Primary Industries (Parks Victoria)
  • public land under the control of a Committee of Management
