Come and immerse yourself in nature on a BSRV and Parks Victoria volunteer-led sensory walk through the Morang Wetlands at Plenty Gorge Parklands.
This walk will guide you through the vibrant wetland ecosystem which supports a wide range of plant and animal life. Learn more about the wetlands through our friendly and knowledgeable volunteer guide whilst walking alongside kangaroos and wallabies that populate the area or listen to the song of the plethora of bird species that make the Morang Wetlands their home.
About the walk: This leisurely paced walk is approximately 2.5km and takes roughly 1.5 hour to complete. The path is mostly flat with some inclines/declines throughout.
