2.69m high tide at 09.45 am.
Meeting time 08.45 onwards.
We are hoping that the king tide will help produce a variety of birds onto this roost as the large tide may push the waders off other roosts.
Take the Bruce Highway north from Brisbane and take the Bribie Island exit. Continue on this road to Bribie Island and follow the signs to Banksia Beach. When you arrive at the T-junction at Banksia Beach turn left and after a short distance turn right into the car park for the roost. A bird hide is positioned at both ends of the roost.
Bring morning tea (and lunch for those keen wader enthusiasts), and a chair. It is a good idea to have a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent. Most importantly bring your binoculars or telescopes. Hopefully we can provide the answers to all your questions.
Please contact Phil & Linda Cross 5495 2758 if you have any questions. Linda’s mobile: 0490 080 340
