Bird Watching - Tin Can Bay & our Wonderful Foreshore!
Not only is Tin Can Bay known throughout Australia as one of the most charming villages on the SE Queensland coast, but our Foreshore continues to gather praise for it's wealth of natural beauty.
Located within Queensland’s Great Sandy Straits, Tin Can Bay is part of a Ramsar Wetland of international importance.
Whether bicycle riding, jogging, or just casually strolling, follow the signage along the 4 km stretch of the easily accessible “Tin Can Bay Foreshore Bird Walk”, soon to be included as a Site in “Bird Trails of Cooloola”.
You will soon discover that Tin Can Bay is home to a truly wonderful variety of birds.
With a list of over 137 species already sighted, our town is gaining a 'reputation' as a great place to bird watch!
The Foreshore provides a range of habitats for an excellent birding experience.
The sandflats and mangroves are a food source for migratory waders and sea birds.
Patches of Wallum heath and sedges provide shelter for ground dwelling and lower storey birds.
Our native vegetation of Wattle, Sheoak and Banksia provide nectar for the middle storey birds, and the birds of the upper-storey feed on the blossoms of the Red River Gums and Bloodwood.
There are also many spots where birds of the “open space” can be observed.
Remember, sandflies and mosquitoes are also a natural part of our environment so dress appropriately and always protect yourself against sunburn, especially in the summer.
A pair of binoculars and a good field guide of Australian birds will no doubt enhance your Foreshore walk.
