Wildlife Walking Trip to Coochiemudlo Island
A one-day walking trip to Coochiemudlo Island through coastal woodlands and mangroves and on long sandy beaches and rocky platforms. Bush stone-curlews stare with big yellow eyes, sea eagles and other raptors are common, and thousands of blue soldier crabs march across the beach at low tide. “Coochiemudlo” means the red cliffs are important to the Aborigines.
Mondays and Tuesdays are recommended to avoid clashing with the Wed-Friday three-day wildlife tour and weekend crowds: it is common to have these beaches pretty much to ourselves on weekdays
Invasive weeds are a problem in some sections of the island. Let us know in advance if you'd like to spend a short time helping the Coochiemudlo Coast Care group pull a few of these to improve the habitat for young native plants, lizards and ground-foraging birds.
