Winton Wetlands - Wantirna

👿 A 3 km exploration on February 12, 2017, starting at the Koomba Park carpark on Boronia Rd.

The area is managed by Melbourne Water.

Site Significance: Two regionally threatened vegetation types are represented
  •  Floodplain Wetland Complex and Riparian Forest
  •  Locally rare flora are present, and the rare waterbird, Latham’s Snipe, has been observed there;
Being on Dandenong Creek, the site is on a major corridor for daily and seasonal movements of birds and insects (particularly waterbirds, several species of which are threatened)
