The Lakes National Park
The Lakes National Park protects the tip of a thin, sandy peninsula between Lake Victoria and Lake Reeve, tucked behind Ninety Mile Beach. The lakes are a refuge for waterbirds, and the land itself is rich in banksia heath. The banksias near Emu Bight lure wattlebirds, sugar gliders (easier to spot here than most places), common ringtail possums and eastern pygmy possums. Around Point Wilson are eastern grey kangaroos and wombats. A handful of bird hides offer good views of the waterbirds, which include the endangered little tern.
