Georges River has records of several threatened shorebirds that use our important wetlands, saltmarsh and mudflats for feeding. 

These birds include the Curlew Sandpiper, Pied Oystercatcher and Bar-tailed Godwit, to name a few. You might be lucky enough to see some of these birds at Council’s naturalised seawalls at Kogarah Bay, or by taking a walk down to Lime Kiln Bay or Gannons Park artificial wetlands.

The following map shows the locations of Georges River Council’s important wetland and saltmarsh habitats.


What is Council Doing?

Council works with and helps fund the Georges Riverkeeper, a not for profit organisation. They help protect the river by guiding best practice management to protect natural resources and improve liveability along the Georges River.

The Georges Riverkeeper runs several programs which aid our waterbirds and wetlands, through rubbish removal, bush regeneration and research.

Council also continues to expand our network of naturalised foreshores, offering increased habitat for waterbirds, amphibians, fish and aquatic invertebrates.

You can view successful foreshore naturalisation projects at the following locations:

  • Kogarah Bay (viewed from Carss Bush Park and Carss Park flats)
  • Lower Poulton Park
  • Lower Gannons Park.
