Last week I posted an article from our local newspaper, St George and 
Sutherland Shire Leader, about a new bird viewing platform overlooking Towra 
Point and Quibray Bay. The article had lots of information but missing were any 
directions as to how to find it. I sent them an email pointing out this 
omission, and although they must have been too embarrassed to reply to me 
directly they did print another story this week giving full details of the 
location. Interestingly they used the same photograph as the previous week.

Anyhow, for those interested here is the article.

Natural wonders take centre stage.

Sutherland Shire residents are taking advantage of the new Quibray Bay view­ing 
platform at Towra Point Nature Reserve near Kurnell.

The platform allows visitors to appreci­ate the ecosystem without disturbing 
flora and fauna.

It has views across the bay, where migratory birds come to breed.

The platform is 3.7 kilometres east of the Elouera Road roundabout on Captain 

Drive, about a kilometre east of the Kurnell landfill entrance.

Access is via a reserve to the left of the platform. There is a gravel parking 
bay lined with concrete bollards at the entrance to the reserve, and signage of 
the platform. Reserve ranger Susanne Callaghan said motorists have been 
stopping to visit the platform. She said it was a great spot for school groups 
who visit Botany Bay Natio­nal Park.
