If you are looking for some adventure and are happy to travel a bit and spend the day out of Melbourne for a nature exploration day... then Yea Wetlands is for you! The Yea Wetlands is home to many species of native mammals, frogs, reptiles, insects and birds.
There is a lovely new discovery centre and walks through the Yea wetlands. http://www.ywatercentre.com.au/
This is a great time to hear Victorian Smooth Froglets calling, and also catch lots of small woodland birds darting to and fro, like the Grey Fantail, White-browed Scrubwren and Brown Thornbills.
The main walk is flat and easy, with much of it on a boardwalk. There are lots of great interpretive signs along the way too. Its a lovely spot to relax and enjoy the tranquillity and sounds of the bush.
