Maroochy Wetlands 20th Birthday Celebrations
Coast residents are invited to celebrate an environmental milestone by taking part in the 20th birthday activities at the Maroochy Wetlands this Saturday.
The Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary will mark its second decade as a key environmental contributor maintaining and preserving the Coast's extensive wildlife.
The event runs from 11am to 2pm, Saturday 11 September at Sports Road, Bli Bli.
Visitors are invited have a lunchtime picnic in the sanctuary, view the displays and walk the boardwalk to explore wet and dry eucalypt forests, rainforest, melaleuca forest, casuarina woodland, salt marsh and mangroves.

The wetlands has one of south-east Queensland's largest stands of Mangrove Fern, Acrostichum speciosum, which grows amongst the melaleucas.

You can watch over 200 species of birds, as well as crabs, butterflies and other wildlife species that make the wetlands their home.

Estuarine wetlands provide fertile grounds for a wealth of marine and native plants and animals as they are inundated by seasonal freshwater floods and by salty tides twice a day. A local, which is also the sanctuary logo, is the fiddler crab, with its distinct large orange pincer claw.

Visitors arriving by car should park at the designated parking areas along Sports Road, where a shuttle bus service will provide a pick-up and drop off service to the wetlands sanctuary entrance.
