Silverwater Nature Reserve (those who have been conducting surveys at the
After the games, public access will still NOT be possible in
the Silverwater Nature Reserve. However, public access will be available
to the southern section of the Wetlands Corridor (via the walking path), whilst

the signs), and of course, Bicentennial Park, Mason Park and Prince Edward Park
(Hen & Chicken Bay) are all open to the public.
Good Luck and Good birding!!
