Went last Wednesday to check out the new platform and was disappointed with the 
design and location. It is to far from the waters edge so it offers a 
restricted view of the bay and I also believe that it will attract vandals to 
the site< as the platform is only around twenty metres from the car park, but 
the platform is out of site of the main road which means it will be a great 
place for locals to party at night, as it is only a five minute drive from the 
local football club. It will be interesting to see what the platform will look 
like in 12 months time, I hope it will not be covered in graffiti and littered 
with broken bottles. The good news is that the National Parks have been doing 
some bush regeneration in the area. I might sound like a kill joy but I believe 
that money could be better spent on weed, dog and fox control ect than spending 
environment money on viewing platforms, walkways, bike tracks and the like. 
However I did see a few birds while I was there.
Eastern Curlew
Great Egret
Bar-tailed Godwit
Pied Cormorant
Great Cormorant
Little Pied
Little Black
Chestnut Teal
