Edithvale-Seaford Wetland



The Edithvale-Seaford Wetland is the largest natural wetland of its type in the Port Phillip and Westernport basins. It is all that remains of Carrum Carrum Swamp, which once covered more than 4,000 hectares from Mordialloc in the north to Frankston in the south.

The remaining wetland areas have been kept to provide flood protection, and include:
  • Edithvale Wetlands (101 hectares)
  • Seaford Wetlands (158 hectares)
Birds and wildlife

It is estimated that at any one time, as many as 7,000 birds make the Edithvale-Seaford Wetland their home. There are more than 190 bird species recorded including many migratory species.

The wetland is also home to a mob of Eastern Grey kangaroos, and an extensive walking and bicycle track around its perimeter is ideal for bird watching.

The Edithvale-Seaford Wetland education centre is located at the wetlands. It provides school students the opportunity to participate in practical, fun and hands-on activities. Members of the public can also visit the centre every Sunday, between 1.00pm and 5.00pm.

The bird hide is a two-story building that offers an excellent view of the wetlands. It is located on the south side of Edithvale Road. The hide is open from 1pm to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays. It is manned by volunteers from the Friends of Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands. (NB: The hide is currently closed as it awaits critical repair work).
