15 Minutes / 5 Kilometres



Description

At Lake Broadwater Conservation Park, south-west of Dalby, an unsealed road leads through woodland south-west of this naturally occurring lake. See some of the native vegetation communities that previously covered the local area before they were cleared for agriculture and grazing. Stop at the elevated bird hide to view wildlife on the neck of the lake.
