Half Day Nature Walk

This is a gentle, half day tour during which we walk slowly around the edge of a meadow and through the surrounding vegetation looking for things of interest. There are no hills on this tour but it can become waterlogged during the rainy season. The openness of the area lends itself to seeing birds, and the plants adjacent to the path are great spots for insects and spiders. This tour is all about taking our time to see as many things as we can, which I will explain along the way.

What you might see

You will see a wide variety plants in the meadow, including Melaleuca cajuputi trees, bushes of plants in Melastomataceae and Rhodomyrtus tomentosa (Downy Myrtle), which has edible fruit that you can try in season.

There is also a high chance of seeing birds, including Gracula religiosa (Hill Myna), doves, flycatchers and sunbirds.
