Wetlands birds 2015Trin Warren Tam-boore

Trin Warren Tam-boore (Bellbird Waterhole) is a wetland located at the northwest corner of Royal Park and part of the Moonee Ponds Creek catchment.

The wetland has been designed to treat water from the surrounding area through natural biological processes.  It provides water to irrigation systems for the Royal Park Golf Course and other sporting grounds in Royal Park.

The wetland has a variety of water plants that provide food and shelter for many different types of fauna and the ponds are very popular with bird watchers. It is one of the sites where the Friends of Royal Park do their bird surveys.

In and around the wetland is one of the few dog prohibited sites within Royal Park.
