Bayles Fauna Park (Bayles)




Whether you are looking for somewhere to take a gentle stroll or somewhere to take a closer look at wildlife, where else would you go but amongst the peaceful setting here in the Bayles Fauna Reserve. Here at the park you will find; deer, geese, ducks, kangaroos and even a rooster roaming around in our large reserve. There is also a new frog pond full of croaking frogs, including the growling grass frog. Lots of local birds come and make the Park their home and can be spotted high up in trees, or down low on the ground. The Park is also the home of the southern brown bandicoot. Look out for our rare golden kangaroos and the deers that hide in the bush. They are sometimes inquisitive and watch at a distance.

Review:


At the entrance is an aviary with cockatoo, lorikeet and pigeons. There is a small museum shed (locked when we were there) with some old implements and rail tracks outside (the area used to be the site of Bayles train station). There were plenty of kangaroos (almost certain to see them) which you need to sneak up on to get close. Unfortunately the emus are no longer there. There are ducks and geese around a pond with a fence to stop access.

The park represents a great opportunity to see semi-wild kangaroos.
