Birdwatching around Gippsland

This stretch of Victorian coast offers some of the best birdwatching in the country. Two locations, both Ramsar-listed, are worth a visit. Protected by the northern arm of Wilsons Promontory, the wetlands of Corner Inlet, near Toora (22 kilometres east of Foster), have a bird hide from where you can observe some of the migratory species that nest in the area. The Sale Common Wetlands have a boardwalk and are also a top birdwatching spot. More than 130 bird species have been recorded here. Watch for glossy ibis, white-faced herons and cormorants in the swampy reed beds.
