Lake Burrendong area

This bird watching site includes Burrendong Arboretum and Botanic Garden, Lake Burrendong State Park and the Lake Burrendong Sport and Recreation Centre.

Burrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum was established in 1964 and covers approximately 167 ha. It offers a number of walking and self-drive trails through a range of habitats, including a fern gully.

The arboretum is an excellent place for woodland birds including Diamond Firetails, Little Lorikeets and an assortment of honeyeaters. The Fern Gully is home to White-browed Scrubwrens and inquisitive Eastern Yellow Robins. Occasionally Gilbert’s Whistlers can be found at the Arboretum.
