Barcaldine Wetlands, birds and kangaroos.

Barcaldine Wetlands are on the western edge of town and have been formed by building a small dam over Lagoon Creek. It is a favourite spot with tourist and locals, with picnic tables, formed paths and access to information on the native species of birds and animals and history of indigenous people and the first European settlers.

The Wetlands are home to numerous species of birds and a mob of kangaroos have inhabited the wetlands and feed on the plentiful grass. In the dry arid interior they take advantage of the small amount of water held back in the waterholes of the creek.
