Lake Elizabeth is a great place to appreciate the wetter areas of the Otways and to see a wide range of birds that frequent this delightful site. Note that we will complete a 5 km circuit walk of the lake that includes some steeper uphill sections that may be slippery in wet conditions. The pace will be fairly slow so we do not miss seeing the birds or the chance to note a platypus in the lake. We will stop for lunch along the walk.

Some members may wish to take the opportunity to join the Fauna Group survey activity and check Elliot traps for small mammals prior to attending the Lake Elizabeth outing. See details here, noting the starting time. There will be sufficient time for people to get to the excursion after traps have been checked.

Meet: 10.30 a.m. at the Lake Elizabeth Carpark. The road is gravel and windy. There are toilets.

Bring: A packed lunch to carry with you, drinks, snacks. Wet weather gear, solid footwear, hat, back-pack, binoculars, sunscreen, camera and field
guides may all be useful.
