About Visit the Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary

The Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary lies in Muckleneuk and is a regular Sunday afternoon picnic spot for families.

The area around the Blue Crane restaurant, which lies virtually on the dam and adjacent reed beds, attracts blue crane, grey crowned crane, rock doves, speckled pigeons and the odd Egyptian goose, that all feed regularly here.

The 11.8 hectare sanctuary lies within the Walkerspruit Open Space System in which two streams feed water into wetland basins that attract a large number of water bird species. There is a bird hide and guided walks as well as an exhibition hall.
