Set over a sprawling 140 hectares the Sparrovale Wetlands is set to be a major drawcard for residents at Harriott, Armstrong Creek.
The area is home to a vast range of flora and fauna, including the Curlew Sandpiper and the critically endangered, Orange-bellied Parrot. Many of these birds migrate to the wetlands from Siberia and Alaska each summer for idyllic days.
The City of Geelong has a 20-year plan for the wetlands that will increase this area to a 500-hectare parkland, with a focus on revegetation to help local wildlife flourish. Trail connections to the Barwon River Trail, Lake Connewarre, and Geelong will also be established as part of these works.
Located next to Harriott, these lovely wetlands offer a sanctuary to explore and wander; or simply sit and watch the birds fly by.
