The small Bluff Nature Reserve is 45 ha in extent and consists of a large pan and adjacent forest. The pan is a home and a refuge for many water birds and waders.
Two bird hides are sited along the edge of the pan and provide excellent bird viewing opportunities. Spoonbills and cormorants nest in the edges of the reedbeds in late winter and spring.
There is an excellent self guided trail in the reserve which meanders around the pan and offers a great opportunity to explore the diverse water-bird life in the reserve. A complete bird list is available from the field ranger.
Directions: Take the Jacobs off-ramp from the southern freeway. Turn seaward at the traffic lights into Quality road. Follow this road until Tara road and turn left into it. The reserve is immediately on the right hand side of the road.
