Fodor's Review

This 299,000-acre reserve stretches east along the coast for 31 km (19 miles). A wetlands paradise, the park draws birders from all over the country to its two blinds. Several walking trails wind through the park alongside lakes, rivers, and the sea. A relatively gentle option is the 45-minute Woodville Big Tree Walk, which takes you past an 800-year-old yellowwood tree and into the indigenous forest.
