Summary

Fondly referred to as Bundaberg’s own slice of Kakadu with its lush wetlands, abundant birdlife and fish breeding habitats, Baldwin Swamp provides a range of authentic wetland experiences, right in the heart of the city.

About the region

Part of a string of wetland remnants in the Bundaberg area, Baldwin Swamp Conservation Park is a tiny slice of Kakadu right in the heart of the city. Waterways here provide valuable feeding and breeding grounds for a variety of waterbirds and other wildlife. About 75 bird species have been seen in the park, including magpie geese, jacanas, swamp hens, herons and hardheads.

Paperbark trees, sedges, swamp grass and reeds grow in swampland in the western part of the park. Dry vine scrub fringes the watercourses and open eucalypt forest grows on higher ground. The rainforest is a remnant of the Woongarra Scrub which once extended between the Burnett and Elliott Rivers.

The Bunda people camped on the creek banks long before European settlement. The swamp was named after one of Bundaberg’s pioneers and the springs provided the settlement’s first water supply. Bundaberg City Council and the community have restored the swamplands and are re-establishing the original vegetation.
