Phone : (02) 6747 1226 (Liverpool Plains Visitor Information Centre)

The Quipolly Recreation Area is the perfect spot for a picnic, a spot of fishing or simply to chill out. There are picnic tables, a toilet with disabled access and walking paths. Bring your own BBQ.

Follow the road past the recreation area to the Old Quipolly Dam, where you find the bird hide. A flora and fauna sanctuary, a “must” for the bird lover! The Liverpool Plains is known for its many and varied bird species such as the Diamond Firetail and Black-chinned Honeyeater. This dam is known worldwide and has a newly constructed Bird Hide on the edge of the dam. The Bird Hide overlooks this pristine flora and fauna sanctuary. According to some sources the dam filled with silt during the 1940′s, attributed to the rabbit plagues and developed a habitat which attracts both water and woodland birds. The sanctuary continues upstream along the creek for about 1km.
