For avid bird watchers, this quaint bird hide is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. Mangrove Bay is in the Cape Range National Park, and is just a short drive away from the Sal Salis camp. The tranquil environment and well camouflaged shelter allow the observer to watch wildlife and especially birds at close quarters. There is a vast variety of birdlife ranging from Peilicans, White Bellied Sea Eagles, Eastern Reef Egrets, Heron and Whistling Kites.
The extensive mangrove root system acts as a nursery habitat for juvenile fish seeking refuge. Mullet and Mangrove Red Snapper are the most common species here, and can often be seen and heard splashing around. Pictured below is a Mangrove Crab taking shelter in the mangroves at low tide.
