Creery Wetlands Reserve is a special place
It was great to see and learn about the Creery Wetland. Our tour guide explained the history and significance of the area while showing us all the different birds and animals. Great way to spend the morning. I had no idea there were such unique and beautiful places here.

Highly Recommend
Had a wonderful nature walk through Creery Wetlands Reserve this morning! Sarah is incredibly knowledgeable from all things birds to marsupials to plants and was a fantastic guide. Can't wait to try out the other walks on offer! A great way to explore the beauty of the Peel Region -
