Wildlife + Bird Watching
Lake Awoonga is a native refuge, offering plenty of native Australian wildlife, such as wallabies, possums, bandicoots, bats and gliders. Lake Awoonga, a dream of an ornithologist, offers both Squatter Pigeon and the Red Goshawk sightings, housing one of the largest and important near-coast bird refuges in South East Queensland.
Lake Awoonga is surrounded by scenic walking trails that start at the caravan park and follow the shoreline of the dam around to a picnic area with shelter sheds, toilets, playgrounds and a BBQ pavilion. These stunning trails are easy going and a lovely way to spend the day.
